Sugar Press Art presents Breath Meets Body, a beautiful layered collection from Noëmi Manser and Mahya Shamai.

The two artists’ bodies of work compliment each other as not two separate collections, but one cohesive show, juxtaposing grounded figures and airy floral displays, all shrouded in an ethereal air. The result is a dreamstate, a world similar to our own, but with more levity, evoking emotion with every glance. With playful interpretations of gravity, the show touches on both the emotional and the physical. While both artists’ work exists in a liminal space, they vary in color palette and subject.

Artist ( Description ): 

About Mahya Shamai

Mahya Shamai was born and raised in Southern California, where she currently works and resides. Drawing and painting have always come naturally to her, which she treasures for their ability to communicate what is beyond language. The most fundamental questions of existence are her primary subject matter- topics such as death, being, and formation of self. Recognizing that these are questions without answers, she finds value in the experience of not knowing. Shamai creates spaces for the unknown to be contemplated in a way that is beautiful and still graspable with points of evocative realism. Her interest in spirituality, especially from her Islamic background, heavily informs the visual imagery of her work.

About Noëmi Manser

Noëmi is a Swiss Artist, based in New York. Her artwork is like a visual diary. Examining the strain between spiritual and matter, ideals and perversion, Noëmi`s works present these tensions, evoking confusion and eroticism, while remaining colorful and hopeful. Holding the principle of polarity, she shows an uninhibited, provoking and direct character that is documenting her personal process. The common elements in her works are single parts of the body, faces, and symbols that she places in her paintings in a symmetric and dramatic way. In picturing her own inner conflicts, processes, and transformations, she translates what can not be described in words but with the universal language of art.

About Sugar Press Art

Sugar Press Art is the leader in contemporary, ecologically sustainable, archival art prints. Launched on Earth Day in early 2016, once technology had advanced enough to create museum quality fine art prints on state-of-the-art, 100% recycled paper, they started with just six artists and have grown to represent over 100. Their personal, unique and often philanthropic partnerships with artists, galleries, companies and charitable organizations makes them exceptionally positioned in a brand-new niche. Every print is made at their printing studio, in Los Angeles, where they print for museums and gallery exhibitions throughout the world. Sugar Press also represents original works from our eclectic roster of artists.
