Vanessa Prager

Vanessa Prager (born 1984) is an America artist, born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. Prager paints dense and furry oil paintings that relish in the peaks and valleys of extruded oil paint.

Vanessa’s main subject is the face and her technique creates an image that hovers between figuration and abstraction in a sort of non-image. Perception, perspective and information flow are all central themes to her work. Her exhbition titled Dreamers — a series of “imagined” portraits which cross the border between the figurative and the abstract— opened and sold out completely, in Spring 2015. Her next exhibition will be in May 2017 at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, California.
