Vanessa Prager: Static 👀
831 N. Highland Ave.
Feb 20, 12 PM - 6 PM — ends Apr 10, 2021
This recently-completed series of new oil paintings by Vanessa Prager, a self-taught artist based in Los Angeles, continues her exploration of sculptural impasto techniques and revisits 19th-century post-impressionism in the 21st century. Prager’s new paintings pack a sensory and emotional impact, redefining perception in a high-def world. They resist the quick take and allow us to discover the hidden treasure of the work itself; in these paintings, more is more. In this time of pandemic, when screens dominate as a means to work, play, connect and exist, Prager is the analog compass directing us back to the tangible.
