Susan O’Malley (1976–2015)

San Francisco–based artist and curator Susan O’Malley has passed away, according to Romer Young Gallery.

After receiving a BA from Stanford University in 1999, and an MFA from California College of the Arts, O’Malley saw her work exhibited at venues including the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, and the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art—where she also curated shows.

“Her art work is a combination of humor and high jinks,” Lea Feinstein wrote of O’Malley in SFWeekly. “But the fun in her work belies the underlying deeper message: Art can change the world if it can show us how to reframe what we see (and accept too easily) as the truth.”
