Vanessa Prager

Tastemaker

Born and bred in Los Angeles, Vanessa Prager pays respect to the SoCal landscape and climate, both guiding forces in her painting work. Vanessa's bodies of work (Dreamers, Pre-Voyeur and Voyeur) reflect the complexity of Los Angeles' multiple social and physical elements—the wildflowers, the people, the way the water meets the sand, the trash, the mountains, the desert colors—through multiple layers of paint, which take on a near sculptural representation of the city.
