2020

$1,725

About

Color and line are imbued with taste and aroma in Mel Prest’s linear abstractions. Her recent works experiment with interference, fluorescents, metallics, and mica, subtly altering the light conditions and the flavor palette of her panels. Kinetic and capricious, Prest’s paintings jostle the eye, causing it to flit from glimmer to glimmer. Recent solo shows include: lux at Galleri Urbane (2018), Lilac Aura at Chandra Cerrito Contemporary (2017); and In Praise of Planetary Time at B Sakata Garo (2016) in Sacramento. Prest’s work is included at the Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley, CA, the Joel and Lila Harnett Print Study Center at the University of Virginia, Richmond, and Apple. Mel Prest lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
