I met Loie as part of an excellent VCU graduate class in 2012. Her sexy transcendental paintings hit all of the right notes- visually dazzling, grand, contemplative, funny. She and her work radiate a bright west-coast optimism.. hopefully her playlist can get us through this inauguration weekend.
I just found this picture of me in my dad's studio circa 1988, in California. This is where I first learned about the importance of studio music.
