Over the past decade Los Angeles painter Lesley Vance's (born 1977) practice has evolved from her acclaimed early still-life works into colorful, gestural abstract compositions. Employing the same virtuosic command of paint, these captivating works subtly play with depth and space perception, creating hard-edged shapes that respond to light and shade to create an illusion of sculptural-seeming bodies via effects that are as precise as they are painterly. Vance's oil paintings and watercolors since 2013 are here collected in a beautifully illustrated monograph, with a lengthy new essay on the artist and her practice by Douglas Fogle, former chief curator of the Hammer Museum, as well as an artist interview with writer Amy Sherlock. Lesley Vance: Painting 2013-2019 presents a stunning body of radical new works by this masterful painter.
