Non-objective painter Mel Prest focuses on color and perceptual visual relationships in her paintings. From afar, her works look like a single, solid color field. However, a closer view reveals multiple converging stripes of color. For Prest, painting is not a mere academic exercise. Instead, she strives to invoke a feeling or a memory with each one. One of Prest’s paintings will be offered in the upcoming Big Names Small Art auction, presented by the Crocker Art Museum. Titled Barragán 3, the piece shows intersecting green and gray lines.
Over 100 lots will be offered in this auction. Featured is a charcoal drawing by Gregory Kondos depicting San Francisco’s Coit Tower. Kondos has spent decades depicting the landscape of California. Today, he is considered one of America’s leading contemporary landscape painters. The sale also offers two oil paintings by Maxine Solomon and sculpture from David Komar. Titled Contemplation, the Komar sculpture shows a semi-circular piece of white marble on rectangular black granite. To view these items and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
