About

Artwork

"Created in conjunction with the painting The Dressing Table, this piece also seems to be on the one hand conforming to idealized standards of beauty - strict, almost realistic rendering of a swimsuit model," says Malia. "All is swiftly undermined though by loose, dripping shards of turquoise paint that threaten to ruin this perfection. Here the paint is liberated, and given complete freedom to drip down the surface without having to conform to any strict rules."

Malia Pettit

Pasadena, California

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.
