An Artist Talk with Zoe Crosher this Saturday, November 10th at 2 p.m. at Patrick Painter, Inc.
Please join me this Saturday, November 10th at 2 p.m. as I discuss the works in Sunlight as Spotlight, currently on view at Patrick Painter in Santa Monica. Light refreshments will be served.
On this occasion, I will be discussing LA-LIKE: Prospecting Palm Fronds series, as well as LA-LIKE: Day For Night (or Sunlight As Spotlight) lightbox series, in the context of my troubled love affair with the disappearance and the imaginary of Los Angeles. I will also read excerpts from Eve Babitz’s “Slow Days, Fast Company.”
“This work is the next iteration in my conceptually mapping what I call the “imaginary” of Los Angeles – a place that primarily exists in people’s imaginations, inspired from what they see in movies, read in books, hear from other people. It’s the false promise that L.A. is founded on, with the disappearing palm tree front and center of that myth.” – Zoe Crosher
