Ten years ago I had the pleasure of working with Malaika in Los Angeles, so imagine my delight when I saw her recent show at JK Gallery in Culver City last week. The show featured new works done in ink on transparent polypropylene paper and flowed through the gallery space like waves of calm and intrigue. Her press release reads: "The invisible, imagined spaces, like floating helium balloons release us. Sometimes there are moments when you find such parallels in life's stories and images that all you can do is laugh and feel happy to be connected to people."
