La Adelita

La Bendita
Sylvia Ji

LA-based artist Sylvia Ji has a new exhibition of her work titled, 'Las Adelitas.'  It's named after the traditional Mexican folk song La Adelita, which you can listen to here on youtube. La Adelita essentially stands for women warriors in the Mexican Revolution.  These soldaderas (female soldiers), cared for and often fought alongside the Mexican soldiers.

The show is comprised of 15 acrylic and gold leaf paintings and two new limited edition giclee prints.  Now before you get upset with me because the gallery is in New York, I have a link to see the gorgeous works.

Interesting. This is straight out of Japanese style. If only American woman would do the same for their men.
