Giant Robot is proud to host Synthesis, a joint art show featuring new work by Jeni Yang and Jesse Fillingham.

Originally from Taipei but now based in Los Angeles, Jeni Yang is an illustrator who experiments with a wide variety of materials and mediums. The incorporation of woodwork in her whimsical and surreal paintings adds a handcrafted feel; the use of pastels and soft wood stains, nostalgia. For the show, Yang says she is studying the effects and relationships of musical instruments with both humans and animals, and plans on making 12-15 small to medium-sized pieces on wood and wood veneers using acrylic paints and graphite.

Jesse Fillingham is a Los Angeles artist who explores themes from nature, mythology, and fantastic worlds and whose interests include unicorns, fluorescents, textures, testosterone, and contradictions. His latest work addresses the relationship between people and nature by taking real-world practices (such as logging or building dams) and infusing them with personal mythologies and mysteries. In his new acrylic paintings on cradled wood panels, the results range from violent and destructive to peaceful and harmonious.
