Exhibition Runs: January 16 - February 14th, 2021- SooVAC will be closed Jan. 30-31 for our annual fundraiser.

For the last seven years Rachel Breen’s work has examined the labor rights of garment workers, a nexus for many challenges of capitalism- globalization, climate crisis, racism, and labor abuse. The Shapes We Take is yet another chapter in Breen’s commitment to making visible, systems that are hard to comprehend and deeply entrenched. And this is a critical time to address the way multinational brands privilege profit over human rights and inform American consumers about our complicity in the way garment workers are treated.

Nathanael Flink is reckless, at least in process when creating his paintings and sculptures. His intent is to defy expectations, inviting the viewer to question the validity of the frame, both in its physical and metaphorical context. Uff Da Gestalt is all about the surfaces without carefully defined corners.

To tell stories that are both personal and universal is Yijia Li’s lifelong pursuit. Her marks on canvas become a document of lives lived.


I love you 3000 is a collection of moments. The materials and techniques utilized in each painting becomes a way to capture the emotional resonance of that experience, at times abstract and in others expressionistic realism. Much like how we remember, some fragments crystal clear and others hazy with feeling that render the story better told in brush strokes and color palettes.
