It All Flourishes Because of You

We are excited to announce our next show featuring Malisa Suchanya with new works on paper an panel. This body of work bursts with rich color, lavish floras, and delightful animals, all in time to get rid of the winter blues and usher in spring for us.

This new collection of Malisa's work shows her deep connection to her family represented as the animals in her paintings. The plants she paints, mostly all found in Singapore where Malisa grew up, are a tribute to her mother and her loving dedication to gardening.

More on Malisa...

"Malisa is an Oakland based illustrator born and raised in Singapore. She finds joy in reflecting on her world and the human experience, capturing moments that are oftentimes overlooked. Drawing from personal experiences, meditating on relationships, and celebrating the beauty of the human body are all recurring themes in her work. She has strong attraction to natural and organic subjects, using art as a platform to create dialogues between life and death, man and nature, peace and conflict. Using watercolors, gouache, and acrylic as her main medium, she remains a lover of traditional art in a technological age."

Malisa's show will run from February 10th to April 23rd. Our reception for her will be held Saturday, February 17th at 6:30 pm. Join the event here. We look forward to seeing you.
