About

Mel Prest explores color phenomena observed in landscapes and light. Her large paintings are about subtlety, creating tension with their attention to the all-encompassing atmosphere of the flowers’ surround—such as the scent of the evening and the kinesthesia of outdoor shape-spaces as they responded to temperatures and weather. Through hand-painted lines that become wobbly strata, and then accumulate into a soft geometry. The artist creates perceptual puzzles that tangle the illusion of two-dimensional space. Mel Prest is an artist, curator, and educator living and working in San Francisco and New York. She received her BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design and MFA from Mills College in Oakland. Recent solo shows include: Lilac Aura at Chandra Cerrito Contemporary and In Praise of Planetary Time at B Sakata Garo. Her works have also been included in group shows at GarveySimon and ODETTA, New York, NY, Saturation Point ACME studios, London, UK; The Drawing Center, New York, NY; The Weatherspoon Museum of Art, Durham, NC; and IS Projects, Leiden, The Netherlands.
