Vanessa Prager: Static
Diane Rosenstein Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition with Vanessa Prager, on view February 20 – April 10, 2021. The forthcoming series of new oil paintings by Prager, a self-taught artist based in Los Angeles, continues the artist’s exploration of sculptural impasto techniques and revisits 19th-century post-Impressionism in the 21st century.
In this time of pandemic, when the digital reigns supreme as a means to work, play, connect and exist, Prager is the analog compass directing us back to the tangible. With big, heavy, drippy canvases and what can only be referred to as extreme painting, she rejects artificial crispness and reminds us that we don’t need pure likeness to feel most present, or most deeply.
