Fecal Face Dot Gallery: Mi Ju - Solo Show.
Comment by AB: Korea-born Mi Ju takes that Anime ethos, urbans it up, and then continues to blend in a mix of Eastern and Western influences. Apparently she's learning her San Francisco Art Institute lessons well, and is clearly on her way to finessing the fine points of bombastic blather. Don't believe me? Witness this-- "Each character, pattern and energy reflects states of consciousness that are revealed in the creative act, a form of both improvisation and organization wherein the uncensored is working in concert with momentary, yet specific compositional organizations." Uh... OK. Good art though. Go see.
