In coordination with Mokha Laget’s exhibition titled, Color into Space, she will be featured in the newest installment of the Arcadia Salon Discussion Series. She will present her work, inspiration and process then answer questions. This body of work is composed of over 20 breathtaking works including Laget’s signature shaped paintings, using unconventional clay pigments, and colorful lithographs. Her work, though firmly rooted in an art historical context, is inspired by her life experiences in locations such as the American Southwest, Japan and North Africa.
Born in North Africa, Mokha Laget is a graduate of the Corcoran School of Art. There she met and became assistant to the Washington Color School painter Gene Davis. Although inspired by Davis, Laget has her own signature sense of color and space.
Dorothy Masterson, founder of the MADI, describes the exhibit as exotic and sensual. “The vast landscapes and strange interiors engage the viewer to explore shaped canvases and see paradox impossibilities.”
Masterson says Laget has the rare ability to intertwine color and form in complex and compelling compositions. The exhibition showcases her artistic excellence.
