Keystone Art Space presents Momentum, a duo exhibition with Los Angeles based artists Mary Lai and Jenny Chandler. A closing art party will be held on Sunday, August 6, 2023, from 2-5pm.


Art is expression. Both Lai and Chandler use emotion to emphasize the movements in their lives as an inspiration for their art. Lai also creates movement through a new iteration of her Abstract Dancer series while Chandler creates movement through brushstrokes, textures and layers of paint.

These complimentary bodies of work come alive with the ebb and flow of color between their different mediums, formats and compositions.

The work in Momentum is not only about motion within the art but applying the idea of achieving Jim Collins’ “flywheel effect” which may occur as an artist accumulates small wins over time. This constant dance of creating and sharing artwork to the world – our attempt to build enough momentum to allow the euphoric effect to take place and go full circle.

Mary Lai, Jenny Chandler

Mary Lai creates vibrant contemporary artwork applying her 20 years of art/design experience to explore what it means to make art with impact in the physical and digital world.

Jenny Chandler creates modern abstract artwork where she combines the perfect balance of gestural brush-strokes and spontaneity.

Together these artists find inspiration within each other to build momentum.
