When I first spied Sylvia Ji's work, it instantly made me think of Dia De Los Muertos... Day of the Dead.
She's from San Franscisco and debuted these gorgeous pieces at Corey Helford Gallery this past weekend.
She details her pieces with glitter and gold that give it a modern yet religious feel.
If you have a chance to visit the gallery yourself, walk upstairs to watch the five-minute film that shows her painting her pieces in time-lapse video. She begins with the outline, focuses on the eyes and goes from there.
My photos do not capture the detail.
