Diane Rosenstein Gallery is pleased to announce “Static,” a solo exhibition of paintings by Vanessa Prager on view February 20 through April 10, 2021. The recently completed series of new oil paintings by 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. Her impasto pieces 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. With big, heavy, drippy canvases and what can only be referred to as extreme painting, Prager rejects artificial crispness and reminds us how an abstract work can help us locate feelings so precisely.
Reservations are required for the safety of its staff and all visitors. The gallery capacity is very limited. Each 30-minute reservation is for up to two guests. CLICK HERE to make an appointment.
