Extended Label Info: Lorraine Malach’s painting career started in the 1950’s under the tutelage of Kenneth Lochead and Art McKay who were a part of the internationally known Regina Five group, known for their ground-breaking work in abstraction. Malach’s painting style is fluid, yet choppy, consisting of many brushmarks built up to create her imagery. Along with painting, Malach worked in ceramic, creating many large scale ceramic murals that focus on human figures in relationship to nature. Lorraine Malach (1933-2003) was born in Regina, Saskatchewan. She studied painting at the University of Regina and earned an art certificate in 1953. Malach went on to study in Pennsylvania at the Barnes Foundation until 1955 and at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts until 1957. Her oil and watercolour paintings and ceramic works have been exhibited in group and solo show in Saskatchewan and across Canada since the 1960s. When Malach passed away in 2003, she was working on The Story of Life, a mural that consists of ten panels, each four feet wise and eight feet height; and ten tons of clay for the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta. The piece was nearly finished when she passed and was completed by her friends.
