Lux Art Institute Goes Botanical With Angela Kallus


Published:

This month, Lux Art Institute doubles as a botanical garden thanks to its latest visiting talent, Angela Kallus. As part of the Encinitas museum’s artist-in-residence program, the Fort Worth–based painter will create five renditions of her signature rose acrylic relief paintings on canvas. The pieces are reminiscent of a baroque wedding cake, so it’s no surprise that Kallus starts the process with cake decorating tools before enhancing the shapes with transparent paint and spraying them with a matte varnish, yielding thousands of varied rosettes.

“I make the things I make because I want beauty and order and agency and perfection and complexity, amid chaos,” she says. “I make art that looks like something that it isn’t.” 

June 11–July 30, 1550 South El Camino Real
