Cayetana Conrad continues her visual exploration of Southern California
in Ondines, the Swimming Pool Paintings opening at Bergamot Station's
Frank Pictures Gallery on Sunday, June 1st. In this series which
began with her highly successful 2006 show at Frank Pictures, The
Language of Youth, Conrad exhibits an intuitive feel for both the
water's silky surface and the unsettling sense of what lies beneath
it. Her web-like grids, connected by light, shatter the swimmer's
form into an explosion of shape, to evoke not only the energy and
geometry of the scene, but its psycho-social forces as well. By
using swimming pools as her focus, the paintings in this series
are an astounding fresh take on a particular lifestyle and ideology,
while referencing centuries of landscape and figurative painting
from Maxfield Parrish through the Impressionists, the Cubists and
Hockney. Conrad,
a native Californian is the daughter of renowned writer, painter,
teacher and bullfighter, Barnaby Conrad.
