Contributor Jilian Mackintosh shares with us her latest studio visit with SF based artist Pakayla Biehn. I love that it's hard to tell where the paintings stop and the real photos begin. It's true Pakayla's paintings are gorgeous and instill double takes. - meighan
As a recent graduate, Pakayla Biehn has taken no time to jump-start her career in art. In the past year she has shown in London, Los Angeles and San Francisco, to name a few. Her double exposure oil paintings have continued to impress and intrigue viewers, as well as give some insight into the mind of this emerging artist.
Miss Pakayla Biehn begins her process of work by experimenting with double and sometimes triple exposure photographs. Using her friends and colleagues as models for inspiration she captures moments of tenderness, beauty and lots of hair.
I stopped by her studio to catch up on her new work, chat and play with her lovely assortment of furry hats. Her newest paintings will be on display at Gallery Hijinks in the Inaugural Exhibition opening on August 21st, from 6-10pm.
