On February 21st, The BMU Third Floor Gallery brought on its second exhibit of the semester, “Suab”, by artist Elizabeth Lo. Her art features multiple techniques, including digital illustrations, acrylic on both canvas and wooden panels, copper drypoint etching, and more. The artwork ranged from extremely colorful to monochromatic and everything in between, setting the mood for each piece.
Elizabeth’s exhibit was a multi-media expression of her suab, or her voice, reflecting many of the struggles that she has faced throughout her life. The artist addresses issues such as cultural expectations, identity, and prejudice through their art. Anyone who came to admire this exhibit could easily tell, without reading the descriptions of the pieces, that each work was near and dear to the artist.
