Statement

This unique body of work covers several subjects dear to Calderon-Gomez’ heart. The REBELutionary Women series, a mixed media tribute to her favorite heroines: Angela Davis, Rosa Parks & Frida Kahlo, among others. In addition, there are paintings from her Julia’s Journeys series. She finds inspiration from her Guatemalan Grandmother, Julia. This is the story of her long immigration to the U.S. back in the 1940’s when Julia was a strong young woman. “I love to tell a story in my work. I’ve always loved a narrative in other peoples artwork, from ParkeHarrison’s 'Architects Brother' series to Banksy’s social observations, I find myself inspired by these talented individuals."

 

Calderon-Gomez was born and raised in California where her mother, a gifted artist, started teaching her to paint when she was seven. She was twenty years old when she landed her first professional work as an illustrator for a book published by Pearson/Simmel Press. She went on to work in animation for award-winning MetroLight Studios in LA. She worked under award-winning digital effects artist, Mark A. Lassoff. They worked in the 2D division called, MetroCel, where she painted cels on Ren and Stimpy & Beevis and Butthead, respectively. In 1994 Lark and her husband moved back to Northern California where she studied for four years with talented painter, Phyllis Shafer.
