Kalani Engles in front of Savage Garden II - Sold!
Kalani Engles currently has a show along with artists Jung Han Kim and Melinda Cootsona at The Studio Shop in Burlingame, California. The above photos are from the opening reception on May 24th. The show runs until June 16, 2012.
Kalani's work is from a series called Savage Garden. Savage Garden represents a fusion of her two predominant painting styles - abstraction and impressionism. The individual flowers and vines are impressionistic renderings of plants she has seen along the trails near her home. The abstraction in these paintings results from the arrangement of the figures on the canvas. Kalani would like the viewer to experience the essence of a wild garden unencumbered by physical context.
Kalani put together a beautiful book of her work from Savage Garden, which you are able to preview and purchase. Photos by Jay Watson and book editing by Jamie Watson.
