DESCRIPTION

Merion Estes’ stunning, multi-layered paintings explore the destruction caused by present-day environmental crises and the lasting impact of these events. Estes combines found fabrics with mixed paint applications and photo transfers to create evocative, saturated landscapes that are simultaneously beautiful and disturbing. Estes was part of the Pattern and Decoration movement and feminist art movements in New York City and California in the 1970s, and her early foundation in these movements continues to influence her work. Curated by Howard N. Fox, Emeritus Curator (Curator of Contemporary Art, LACMA, 1985-2008). 

This exhibition is supported by the Antonia and Vladimir Kulaev Cultural Heritage Fund and the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation.
