Sara Anstis “The Petal and the Wrist” @ Various Small Fires, Los Angeles

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

Various Small Fires is excited to announce the gallery’s second solo exhibition with Sara Anstis, and her first exhibition in Los Angeles: The Petal and the Wrist. Anstis is a world builder and storyteller. On paper, canvas, and in writing, she weaves an auto-fiction that explores the resistance and power of the imagination in the contemporary context. In these works, there is an insistence on the interconnectedness of all life forms, and a rejection of the anthropocentric: background and landscape become foreground and figure, and her human-like animals are left out of some canvases altogether, or relegated to minor roles in which they can only quietly observe.
