ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Coalesce (Koh-uh-les) verb. (1) To unite, grow or come together to form one mass or whole.

A trinity of women who come from diverse backgrounds, independent aesthetics, and a variety of mediums have formed a profound bond that enables them to be inspired within each other’s works. The work of Alex Andreotti, Jasmine Fojas, and Kytana Winn may look different in appearance, but  are all rooted from growth and transformation through the trials and tribulations of what it means to be an artist. Throughout the process of finding oneself, we found friendship through the interlaces of the copper, the coils of the vessel, and the cuts of the paper.

 In the end, our work and our friendship made it. 

 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Jasmine Fojas:

Jasmine Kapuaokalani Fojas is a Silhouette Artist from the Big Island of Hawaii. Her work is the art of storytelling, revealing as little or as much as she wants of her personal experiences. She is influenced by her upbringing on the emerald pastures near the sapphire sea. When she is not in her studio or out socializing, she loves watching Chopped and The Food Network where she is inspired to become a chef. But honestly, she is an amazing baker. Fojas loves long walks on the beach, and when life wasn’t about building walls. 

 

Alex Andreotti: 

A walking oxymoron, Alex Andreotti is a student athlete who is about to graduate as the stereotypical art student. She plans to move to Portland after graduation where she will to attend Pacific Northwest College of Art’s for the MA Critical Studies program. Originally from San Francisco, she fell in love with the Pacific Northwest which suits one of her favorite past time: hiking and enjoying a nice IPA at the end with a view that she can draw in her sketchbook. She can cook minute rice in 58 seconds. 

 

Kytana Winn: 

A Born and bred military brat, Kytana Winn self identifies as a majestic sunflower while simultaneously being an awkward potato. When she’s not scrolling through Tumbler and listening to Florence and the Machine, she’s searching the web for Afrofuturism art. Although she is currently working with clay, she picked up a camera in high school and it has transpired into a love affair that will last a lifetime.

 

JAK:

African American, Mexican-Sicilian, and Hawaiian that enjoys drinking sake while bitching about life. She is a pun master, sunflower grower, and softball player who always cries while looking at Rothko paintings. JAK is also secretly married to Jason Momoa. She enjoys making essential oil rolls, runs a jewelry business and attends Third story concerts.
