An ongoing, online-only exhibit featuring new drawings from Laura Lit.
“Laura Lit (b. Dallas, Texas, 1979) is an artist in Austin, Texas. Like Gerard Richter, Lit is a polyglot painter adept in several visual languages. Her practice combines a virtuoso hand with an omnivorous eye. FUZZY FORCES is Laura Lit working now, fast and focused bursts of drawing with colored pencils. Reminiscent of the AFTER IMAGES paintings, the compositions seem sentient, astral manifestations of spirit visitors. In 2015 Lit showed hyper-realistic oils at Women at their Work, meticulously crafted and sexually charged figure painting exploring the tension between desire and observation. Buoyant, unpredictable, and iconic, her 2018 work for AFTER IMAGES at Northern-Southern are abstracts of what Lit sees with her eyes closed, painted with the lightest touch. In 2019’s LIKEsNESS, Lit returned to the figure and representation but with sculpture: startlingly colored but tender busts of women in repose. N-S will release the drawings as Lit completes them, roughly one a week. The show will conclude when Lit finishes the last drawing in the set.”
