After the Fire, Malibu State Park
Just after Sooki's diagnosis with Pancreatic Cancer, as she was packing for her flight to Duke in November 2018 for the Whipple surgery to remove the tumor, she and her husband were evacuated from their Topanga Canyon home due to the Woolsey Fire that was tearing through Malibu just a few miles away. In Spring of 2019, after a successful surgery that had removed her tumor, Sooki experienced the wildflowers that popped up on the hill after hill of the burnt Malibu landscape as a metaphor of her own healing and awakening as an artist. This piece was selected for inclusion in an exhibition of art inspired by the Woolsey Fire at Malibu City Hall called ”Radical Beauty, Malibu Rising.” The original painting is acrylic on canvas and is signed with ”S. Raphael”.
