malia schultheis: an equation of meaning

i am very excited for our upcoming exhibit! we are experimenting with six week engagements, so malia's show will open mid-january with a soft opening, then two weeks later we will be a featured stop on the art walk. hopefully this double exposure will get a lot of people through the door, because I LOVE malia's work. i haven't been this inspired or excited about a local show in quite awhile. i think that malia's work is sexy, scintillating and provocative. exactly the kind of thoughtful work that i would like to highlight here at the gallery. here is the press release that we sent out for the show:

Beginning January 16th Fenario Gallery is proud to present, An Equation of Meaning, new works by local artist Malia Schultheis. This exhibit will include new works on paper as well as new oil paintings, by the 29 year old Eugene resident. Ranging from brooding, introspective charcoals loaded with spiritual resonance and occult imagery, to sharp, glamorous oils with modern tones and a hint of sophisticated fashion photography, Malia’s solo exhibit will highlight the diversity of the artist’s interests and talents. Schultheis’ work swims with abstract, recurring themes such as origami, architectural blueprints and floating streams of numerical figures that create a sense of interconnectedness between the works but retain an overall feeling of mystery. These works embody the fractured, seemingly random nature of the modern world, and give the audience a view out from the center of life’s ever-complicated labyrinth of meaning. An Equation of Meaning is a worldly collection of provocative pieces sure to inspire contemplation and discussion.
