Vanessa Prager: Portraits
In her mythic portraits, Prager works between still life and classicism to depict subjects that are a hybrid of floral life and human beings.
Diane Rosenstein is pleased to present Portraits, an exhibition of recent paintings by Vanessa Prager. This installation is comprised of fifteen oil paintings that depict individuals in a profound state of metamorphosis. In her mythic portraits, Prager works between still life and classicism to depict subjects that are a hybrid of floral life and human beings. This is Prager’s second solo exhibition with Diane Rosenstein Gallery.
With a humorous nod to Arcimboldo’s Proto-Surrealistic naturalist visages, Prager’s ‘portraits’ employ the flower as a metaphor for both the transformative and transitory qualities of life. The artist, acknowledging profound ‘cataclysmic shifts’ in the world over the past few years, notes that this body of work is a gesture towards connection and reconnection with others, an expression of optimism.
