Painter and pastel artist Daggi Wallace is a member of the Studio Channel Islands community. This exhibition is a compilation of her most recent work including an exploration of water, a focus on the Berlin wall, and studies that relate to the #MeToo movement. Though it is not the case with her work in general, this exhibit focuses on portrayals of women.
Wallace was born in West Berlin close to the Berlin Wall in 1962. She uses the wall as a symbol for all the walls in life, including those internally built. She uses the wide-open spaces of the American Southwest and the freedom of bodies of water to reflect how she felt after immigrating to the United States.
“Focusing mainly on portraying the human condition and our connection to each other, my work always begins with a visual trigger that evokes a strong emotional response in me or with an idea I want to explore,” Wallace said.
Wallace’s paintings have been published in several books and magazines, including American Art Collector, Southwest Art, Professional Artist, International Artist, the Pastel Journal, Poets and Artists and Pratique Des Arts.Cal Lutheran students Christine Dauzat of Chatsworth, Christian Duimstra of Rancho Cucamonga, Cristina Farias of Camarillo, Paris Notter of Westlake Village, Brianna Pinal of Vista, Evan Pine of Calabasas and Mikaela Wundrow of San Diego curated the exhibit as part of their Arts Management and Museology course.
