Currently on view at Overduin and Kite, Los Angeles is “La Jennifer,” an exhibition of new paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Dianna Molzan. Molzan’s new body of work draws from disparate cultural histories and personal influences focusing on a particularly American cultural heritage. With these new paintings, Molzan references touchstones in her formation as an artist. The color palette and physical form of the paintings embody a legacy of materials and movements that assume multiple readings through the lens of American iconography and entertainment. Molzan’s work explores the range of possibilities within painting’s inherent limitations addressing the fundamental structures of the medium. In some works, Molzan unravels and reassembles canvas to mimic quotidian objects such as string, cans, and tassels.
“La Jennifer” is on view through December 21st, 2013.
