EXHIBITION: Victoria May & Lisa Diane Wedgeworth at Louis Stern Fine Arts


“WOMAN I WOMAN” Victoria May & Lisa Diane Wedgeworth
@ Louis Stern Fine Arts, Los Angeles
Through January 12th, 2019

Excellent exhibition by independent curator Jill Moniz. “With opposite but not oppositional practices, these artists work in and at the boundaries of method, materiality, and meaning”.

Victoria May says in her statement

Continually I attempt to merge the delicate with the strong, to seduce and repel, to obscure and reveal, and to combine the hand and the machine.

Lisa Diane Wedgeworth says

In paintings, abstraction is employed as a visual language to map emotional and psychological energies that are conjured as she engages and considers her personal relationships.
