Life is very precious, even right now is Angela Dufresne’s second solo exhibition with M+B. Dufresne approaches painting with a sense of ecstatic vigor, juxtaposing vibrantly colored fields teetering on the edge of abstraction, and placing figures in the ambiguous spaces that result. These figures—human, animal, and supernatural—cavort in combinations involving everything from solemn prayer to delirious sexual congress. Through a radical bricolage, she invents a world of fragments—mythological, historical, and pornographic—all filtered through an intense awareness of film history.
