Join us at Hairroin Salon, November 8 for "Gears, Gears, Gears: a steampunk burlesque" an art show by Jessica Van Hulle. Admission is free, and so is the champagne!
Jessica Van Hulle’s artwork is full of passion and conviction. In her latest exhibit, “Gears Gears Gears: A Steampunk Burlesque,” Van Hulle renders subcultural beauties in cheeky pin-up poses and provocative portraits.
However, these vibrant oil paintings are more than just sexy eye-candy. They feature intense themes of self-image, sexual power, authenticity, and hope on the edge of apocalypse.
They are about reclaiming individuality and using creative energy to nurture healthy women with healthy psyches and robust sensuality.
Van Hulle's work invites re-evalution of the constrictive mainstream images of beauty that inundate us daily. She hopes that viewers will feel opened up, inspired, hopeful….and just a little naughty.
Jessica Van Hulle was born in San Francisco in 1979. She grew up in the East Bay, raised by an architect and a psychic. She lived in S.F. for 5 years, receiving her B.F.A. in Illustration in 2004 from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
