    Artwork by Mally Khorasantchi in the 22nd Floor Capitol Gallery

    Florida Artist Mally Khorasantchi is interested in how nature exhibits both chaos and calm, constantly evident on micro, macro and universal levels, seemingly at odds and without purpose. Newly discovered species, natural and manmade adaptations and renewal, and a growing awareness for global sustainability are reflected in her artwork now on view in the 22nd Floor Capitol Gallery.
