Featuring Henry Krusoe, Tidawhitney Lek, and Floyd Strickland
Sign-up for Studio Soup
A quarterly series of candid conversations about process, featuring guest artists who share their experience and practice. Artist, Peggy Reavey hosts this closer look at the unique ways artists move from original impulse to finished piece – how their work comes to be.
About the featured artists:
Henry Krusoe, a studio artist based at Angels Gate Cultural Center, is drawn to the subject of monsters. Monsters can be found or suggested in his sculpture, videos, and drawings. Krusoe challenges us to be ready for monsters – now, and in our future.
Tidawhitney Lek is the sixth of seven children of parents who survived the Khmer Rouge and emigrated to the Long Beach Cambodian Community, where she still works and lives. Lek’s large paintings depict the textures and patterns of her neighborhood and the emotions woven throughout.
Floyd Strickland’s mural-sized paintings of African American culture are full of light and color. His current body of work is mainly populated with school age children who he paints to reveal to them – and the rest of us – how beautiful and brilliant they are. Strickland is based in Los Angeles, and grew up in the Watts/Compton area, which influences his work.
Studio Soup is a free, virtual event hosted by Angels Gate Cultural Center.
