Infamous and famous, the all-mighty C-word has been a part of popular culture for generations. The word is a door into discussions of modesty and promiscuity, a polarized conversation where women are forced to take sides – grotesque or beautiful, clean or filthy. The exhibition, C.U.Next Tuesday features the works of Aya Rodriguez-Izumi and Davina Hsu, multi-faceted artists whom employ colorful pallets with designs and images that have the clean finish of print-making. Artist Aya Rodriguez-Izumi’s work focuses on social anomalies and no subject depicted in her drawings and paintings is taboo, while Davina Hsu’s drawings and paintings search the deep annals of vulnerability, personhood and beauty. Both jaw-dropping and reflective, this exhibition re-opens the conversation on just what is so grotesque and beautiful about C.U.Next Tuesday.
