Courtney Booker, Freelance Animator and figurative painter has an opening of new work tonight (!) from 6-10 pm at the Homestar Cafe. Booker's expressive linear approach to the figure is rooted in Kathe Kollwitz, Egon Schiele, and Alice Neel, but her animation work and hip-hop flava bring a new personal dimension beyond simple emulation of the masters of figurative expression. Booker has shown extensively in the San Francisco area.
*With Music by Casey Neill!*

Booker is brand new to Portland having been recently hired by Will Vinton Studios as one of its two new directors. She has worked on both finding Nemo and The Incredibles as well as co-creating a they Might be Giants video.
Welcome to Portland, news travels very fast in this art & design obsessed city and yes some of the most talented people in San Francisco continue to stream into PDX.
All I can say is, I'm down with anyone who's into combining the aesthetic impulses of Grandmaster Flash and Alice Neel. I've always suspected they were secretly linked anyhow.
