"My latest works further explore the intricate and delicate forms of an imaginary ecosystem, twisting and floating together in an alluring environment. I attempt to create an ethereal place which is hypnotically familiar and yet hauntingly exotic, adding tiny little details in a sort of compulsive meditation, until a perfect balance is created. The intricacy and high detail, along with hints of existing organic shapes lend to the intimacy and believability of each new world. " ~ Yellena James January 31st is the last day to experience Yellena James' lush and colorful exhibit in person. If you're in the Bay Area, be sure to visit LeQuiVive in Oakland.
