This week at the Dr. Maxine Merlino Gallery I saw the work of Kathy Yoon. Her art showcase was a series of ceramic sculptures that reminded me of the art style of The Nightmare Before Christmas. Kathy originally went to cypress college with the intenstion of being a math major, but after taking her G.E. art class she fell in love with art and changed her focus in school. After finishing her schooling she wants to work in character design. Her art was inspired by her switch in major and not knowing what to do in her life. She used mostly black and white in her sculptures and the red coloring was used to highlight features of the sculptures. I found her work unsettling, not creepy like a Halloween character but unsettling in the way they were posed and you could see how they could be animated and it just screamed Nightmare Before Christmas to me. I really enjoyed Kathy’s show. If you want to see more of her work click here.
