JAYJAY is honored to present So these two artists meet in Texasâ€¦. work from University of Texas, San Antonio professor Ken Little, along with his former Graduate Studies student and Sacramento painter Kim Squaglia.
Little returns to Sacramento bringing new trophy pieces as well as a survey of bronzes from the 1990â€™s and a monumental 6â€™ bear form from 1985. Little is well known for his narrative animal forms that work on many levels; visually beautiful in form, ironic in choice of materials and humorous in their totality. He received his MFA from University of Utah, Salt Lake City in 1972 and his work can be found in private and public collection throughout our region and the US including: Alfred University Museum, McDonalds Corporation, Sacramento, Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, Phoenix Art Museum, Everson Museum, Syracuse, NY, Museum of Contemporary Craft, NY, NY among many others.
Squaglia did her undergraduate degree at CSU, Chico followed by her MFA at University of Texas, San Antonio where she enjoyed early kudos in her career. Squaglia makes paintings that capitalize on a recent trend in contemporary art of making objects of lush surfaces, organic patterns with an almost edible quality ie: eye candy. However, Squagliaâ€™s approach has matured beyond trends with this new body of work, in which color choice is no longer pretty but sometimes bold and verging on the confrontational. Her work traveled to museums across the country in Populance, a group exhibit of contemporary artists curated by David Pagel. Her work already can be found in the Progressive Art Collection, Neiman Marcus Collection, Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, and the Microsoft Corporation.
