This summer, cool off in Kapnick Hall and journey through the special exhibition Natural Oasis: The Art of Mally Khorasantchi.
May 3 – September 2, 2019
*Please note: Kapnick Hall will open late on May 31, June 4, and June 5 due to scheduled events.
Each painting and collage is an homage to the natural world. Khorasantchi’s works are a celebration of the ever-changing landscape that surrounds us. Currents of gnarled trunks and roots, repeating patches of honeycombs, and rhythmic threads of color evoke a sense of connectedness and restoration throughout the exhibit.
Mally Khorasantchi’s journey in visual art began in Dusseldorf, Germany, where she was born. Khorasantchi received classical training in china painting, sparking her interest in floral design and the arts at a young age. Vibrant images of the lush tropical landscape, such as sea grape leaves and mangrove roots, began appearing in her artwork after relocating to Florida in 1992. Mally Khorasantchi strives to communicate her life journey and passion for the natural world authentically and honestly through her paintings and collages.
