"Most of what gallery visitors see is the final curated finished pieces in a clean well lit room. Carpe Diem gives visitors the opportunity to view the entire process from blank canvas to completion. The idea behind the show is that each piece is created at the gallery by the artists in 24 hours. The gallery chose a date and each artist was given a 4ft x 8ft panel and a 24 hour window in which to make their pieces. This year it started at 8am March 29th and finished at 8am on March 30th. The gallery was open to the public the entire time. There was a lot of interaction, not only between the artists, but also between the public and the artists. This is the second year lOAKal has done this show and we plan on continuing and growing it." - Eddie Colla
Hueman grew up drawing and painting in Northern California, and received her degree in Design | Media Arts from UCLA in 2008. Whether she is painting delicate visions on canvas, or crushing massive walls with a spray can, she often draws on the human condition to create freestyle mash-ups of the abstract and figurative, and the beautiful and grotesque. She is interested in creating ethereal motion and dimension on otherwise flat, two-dimensional surfaces.
Hueman’s work can be seen on walls and in galleries worldwide. Her art has caught the attention of media outlets and publications such as CNN, the History Channel, Complex, Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, and she recently graced the cover of LA Weekly’s 2014 People Issue.
