As part of our ongoing partnership with Beautiful/Decay, today we bring you the paintings of Laura Krifka. Krifka lives and works in Ventura, California, and will have a solo exhibition at CB1 Gallery, in Los Angeles, in 2014. The article was written by Stacey Dacheux and originally published on August 20, 2013.
Laura Krifka’s work feels both classical and contemporary—a collection of myths that transcend time, stuck on the spin cycle from one era to the next. There is a soft religious quality in each face as he or she slowly responds to pending doom, lurking out of view. Such off -stage suspense feels exactly this way—theatrical.
