Vanessa Prager (USA, b. 1984) is an artist born and raised in Los Angeles. A self-taught artist, she is known for her elaborate impasto technique that creates layered and sculptural surfaces. Her figurative works engage the oil paint itself as a participant in the image. Prager explores themes of identity, self-reflection, voyeurism and the human condition in the 21st century. Reflecting on a world remotely observed via screens, her three-dimensional work is a direct reaction to that two-dimensional plane.

Prager has received recent solo shows with The Hole, New York; Richard Heller, Los Angeles; and Kristin Hjellegjerde, Berlin and London; and groups shows in Los Angeles with Over The Influence; M+B; and Diane Rosenstein Gallery. The artist lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
