In this graphic narrative, minimalist illustrations and diluted colorplay embody the mind of a calm and withdrawn anti-hero. An apathetic femme fatale who bathes in melancholy and revels in solitude. In her visual diary shrouded under the stars: small poetic moments between the bathtub and bedroom, both mundane and evocative. Contrary impulses exist side by side, producing no collective will—yet each vignette delivers the glimpse of a narrative in these brief episodes of lust, isolation, self care & self sabotage.
Angela Bulich is a painter, sculptor, jeweler, and resident artist in Studio 8. This exhibition is an opportunity to add scope to her more recent work featured in the resident artist show, In Pieces. “Vignettes” is originally a one-off series of illustrations inspired by scarcity, uncertainty, independence, the unconscious.

About the Artist
Angela Bulich is a multidisciplinary artist working in jewelry design, sculpture and painting. Receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences from University of California at Riverside, she is endlessly inspired by minutiae inside the mind, and body which became the foundation for her artistic practice. Her paintings are figurative, anatomical, contemplative, with an emphasis on optic sensibilities–mindful of the brain’s fondness of symbolism and perceptual problem solving.
Her sculptural work which began as bent steel rods, and stone arrangements, evolved into an art and design focused jewelry line “Leather Stone Metal” aptly named for the strict set of materials used in her process. Each piece of jewelry is akin to a small sculpture with consideration for composition and construction.
Though both disciplines of her art-making process are seemingly compartmentalized; paint being gestural and figurative, governed by symbolism. Stone and metalwork being tedious and rigid, governed by materiality– The polarity of disciplines and materials are complementary (rather than opposing) forces. Both attenuate and balance the tension of her creative output.
