As a part of The Mercurial Gallery’s ‘re·la·tion’ exhibition, on display through May 17, the gallery held an artist talk with featured artist Jana Ireijo, a painter from Westport, Connecticut. Ireijo, a mother and triathlete, is originally from Hawaii and creates bright, often large-scale paintings depicting animals – she says they are self-portraits revealing obsessive ruminations on identity, memory, and desire.
Take a peek inside Ireijo’s mind and discover her evolving process with this recording from the April 25 talk, and be sure to visit the exhibition before it closes on May 17 1 at 11 Library Place in downtown Danbury, Connecticut. More information at themercurialgallery.com.
