Artwork

Artist Malia Pettit depicts a soft portrait of an expressive woman in tones of vibrant crimson leaning against a muted wall. "It's a piece about longing and waiting in the absence of something or someone," explains Malia. Her eyes gaze out thoughtfully amidst a strong contrast of red and bold black lines and defined shadows. Malia paints classic imagery of women showing a slice of vulnerability rendered in loose brushwork and color dripping.

Malia Pettit

Lafayette, Louisiana

Malia Pettit sees her artistic process as an act of “liberating the paint” and “allowing for the unexpected to occur.” Her portraits of women stem from a fascination with glossy magazines and their portrayal of models, actors and celebrities. Her work has been especially influenced by Chantal Joffe and John Singer Sargent. She currently lives in California after having lived in England for ten years. When she’s not painting, she is a full-time mom and enjoys exploring estate sales, antique stores and used bookstores.

Malia's artwork is beautifully expressive. I have bought two portrait paintings from her and they look stunning together; I love them. The bold strokes and colours are perfect in every setting.

I had my eye on "Remembering Frieda" for a while and was so pleased to find the piece is exactly as pictured and even more striking in person. Thanks!

I bought this work just before my husband attempted to buy it for me as an anniversary gift. Some might consider it the gift of the Magi, but ultimately we knew we couldn't live without Victoria.
