The Hybrid Project
The Hybrid Project is a collaborative partnership between selected local artists and artist Peter Liashkov. Each participant was invited to select one of Liashkov’s life size silhouettes, drawn or painted on synskin (a translucent fiberglass paper). Each artist reworked the piece in his/her own manner the form of painting, drawing, printing, sculpture and installation. This is the second exhibition of the ongoing Hybrid Project. The first of these was held at Blackgate Space in Silverlake in the spring of 2009.
Peter Liashkov is Professor Emeritus from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena since 1975. He is in the collection of the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art; the Brooklyn Museum, New York; the Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia; and the Howard Ahmanson Collection, among others.
