BFREE Studio, run by Gallery Owner, Barbara Freeman, announces BLUE SKY: PAINTINGS, a Solo Exhibition by Cecilia Wong Kaiser running January 17 - February 5, 2023 at the Gallery on Girard Ave in La Jolla. Link to Exhibition

Blue Sky is a collection of paintings that depict a sun-kissed, buoyant world and call to mind a boundless day, framed by a seen or unseen, probably California sky. Beyond the iterative use of the color blue across the majority of works, the paintings invite blue-sky thinking, in which all creative ideas - free of limits and judgment - are welcomed. Each painting documents a particular moment in time, and as such, is a starting point for a story that is told through and expands according to the individual viewer's experiences. The narratives that emerge are as unique and limitless as the viewer's own associations. Hopefully, too, they all occasion a smile.

From The Artist: Cecilia Wong Kaiser
Because I loved to draw as a child, I assumed that I would be an artist when I grew up. Some of my earliest memories center around drawing: drawing the world around me and the life I imagined for myself. At some point, I started drawing with paint, and I majored in painting in college and got a degree in fashion design thereafter. Then I became a lawyer and didn't paint (or draw) for many years.

I am grown up now, and six years ago, I started painting again in earnest. I realized that making pictures has always been a big part not only of understanding who I am and where I have been but also in telling the story of my own life. My life has been an extraordinarily blessed one, in the big moments and in the small, everyday ones. In painting what I want, how I want, I try to capture quiet celebrations of the everyday, my every day. Both in the process of committing these memories to canvas and in the open-ended narrative that is the finished painting, I memorialize the sun-filled snapshots of living here and now that might otherwise go unremembered: I paint.
