Lara Schnitger- SOLO SHOW
28 July - 15 October
We are pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Lara Schnitger. This is our first solo show of the Los Angeles-based Dutch-born artist with the gallery.
Lara Schnitger’s use of fabrics entwines textile patterns with social codes and narratives. The artist often co-opts craft techniques that bear latent gendered and domestic connotations, such as patchwork, knitting or dyeing. Schnitger’s more abstract assemblages play between surface and support, transparency and opacity of different materials, and hint at suggestive anthropomorphic postures. Her collaged paintings and banners are often more explicit. Schnitger’s work is frank in expressing her primary themes: sexuality, desire, and the shaping and representation of the female body in particular.
