Angela Johal states, "I search for images like one would look for buried treasure. At a distance, the collages appear to perfectly balance abstract compositions, but as you draw closer, images begin to emerge. The viewer must work to extract from the intricate and dense collages, giving time for reflection.”

Beyond Consumerism: The Body Speaks presents works of art by Livermore artist, Angela Johal. Ms. Johal holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from San Jose State University and has been exhibiting professionally in the region since 2006. Drawing from pop culture and consumerism, Angela seeks to reinvent and energize color and images. Incorporating materials such as thread, paint chips, magazines, and found objects, she re-organizes elements not only to create new imagery, but also to re-contextualize them, through the use of collage. The results are highly designed works of art that invite the viewer to explore layers of interlocking imagery, shapes, color, and meaning.

Public hours for the Grand Galleries are Tuesday – Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and one hour prior to most performances on the Grand Theatre stages.
