Exploring the space for conversation created through the presentation and varying media of the work, this exhibition will highlight the experiential, mindful, investigative, and interpretive qualities of the five artists’ work.
Lola Rose Thompson says
"I am influenced by investigative journalism, headlines, the editorializing of popular culture, magic, medicine, science, and the new age."
Satsuki Shibuya is a painter, artist and spiritual thinker, living and working in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Her work is based upon intuition, energy and spirit, exploring the realms of the unknown to bridge the gaps between the traditionally tangible and the unseen. Each piece created embarks the observer on a unique and personal journey into their own soul, in hopes that they emerge not only inspired about peace and harmony, but also with enlightened appreciations for this world in which we all live and share. "[Watercolor] is more than just creating with a beautiful medium, but is a way to express myself that words would not allow, to let go of the need to worry about what to do next, but to follow the soul." Shibuya presents a new body of work, titled EXISTENCE.
Lani Trock is a Los Angeles based multi-disciplinary artist. Her work investigates the human relationship to nature through photography, sculpture and immersive, environmental installations. Her artistic practice is informed by a childhood spent freely exploring the wilderness of Hawaii and California and a nontraditional trajectory into art making. Having worked as a designer, programmer & photographer, her process consistently inhabits the place in which technology and art meet. Deeply interested in the potential multi-functionality of spaces, her work seeks to create environments that are both beautiful and useful; creating educational spaces through the implementation of best new technological practices, and which are built utilizing found, repurposed or readily available materials.
Our artist programs facilitate exhibitions with galleries, independent exhibition spaces, and the Tappan Atelier, offering the opportunity for artists to showcase their work in the physical realm.
