Los Angeles, California.- CB1 Gallery is pleased to present “Laura Krifka: First Blush” on view from February 26th through March 25th, with an artist’s reception on Sunday, February 26th from 5 – 7 p.m. The exhibition explores the artist’s interest in the creation of American mythology and the role visual language has played in its construction. Laura Krifka makes paintings, sculptures and videos that dissect common fantasies of power and identity. Her sculptures grew out of her paintings, which led to her work in animation, with all mediums now informing one another. Her work is both gorgeous and terrifying often dealing with fantasies of beauty and nobility, myth, power, identity, seduction and the American dream.
