Alumna Elizabeth Malaska Artist Talk
November 12, 2019
MFA in Visual Studies alumna Elizabeth Malaska will give an artist talk Saturday, November 16, 11am at Russo Lee Gallery in her current exhibition of new paintings Of Myth or of Monday.
Malaska is a Hallie Ford Fellow in the Visual Arts and has been a nominee for The Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Painters and Sculptors Fellowship and for the Portland Art Museum’s Contemporary Northwest Art Awards.
She has said of her work:
“I am deeply invested in reshaping Western culture’s relationship to women and the feminine, especially as they appear in paintings. Re-visioning histories, I use elements from art’s past and present -- assembled in new ways. These elisions create slippages, allowing me to mine the power given to traditionally sanctioned signs that result in redistributing their forces along more equitable lines.”
