  This exhibition invites a group of artists working in various modes and media, to offer, in visual form, the wisdom the desert has worked in them.  While works that take up the desert as a physical/visual site/sight are welcome, so too are works that emanate from the inner desert wanderings that attend us all.  The “desert” is broadly defined here as physical, spiritual, psychological, mythic, and/or metaphoric space.

          Art of Ginger Lai | Jan 5th – Feb 2nd 2020  


Ginger Lai is a painter of energy grounded in two traditions. She performed Sumi Ink paintings in her formative years, enchanted to be part of an historic approach to painting that combines the ultimate taste of freedom with the most serious demands of discipline.

Immigrating to America overwhelmed her with the radical possibilities inherent in Western abstraction. She took years to merge the two approaches into her mature style that combines the discipline of Sumi with the ingrained aesthetics of Western abstraction. Lai's synthesis manifests as automatic markings repeating the patterns of her spontaneous application.

Her paintings are a transmutation of spirit rendered as the pure interaction of color as form. They are intended to be an uplifting experience for viewers, reminders that part of what it means to be human is making what is temporary permanent.
