Mahalia Jackson: Mother of Peace

Artist

Kalli Padget
An artist of Creole / Cajun decent from Lafayette Louisiana based in New Orleans. After obtaining a Fine arts degree at SCAD in Savannah Georgia, Kalli began making paintings encapsulating themes of New Orleans and the southern socio-political landscape. Her work is an obsession of exploring the impossible task to “Defining Humanity.” Images created from personal reflection turn harsh perspectives into fluid conversation, give homage to the incredible community of Nola, and compelle viewers into actively nurturing a better humanity. Most current bodies of work include “Emergence,” “The Appropriate Tip,” and “Excavation.” Kalli is seeking to bring her work into a more interactive state with plans for public art, sculpture, and installation in the near future.
