Visual Artists Group is pleased to present Angle of Repose curated by Justin Gilanyi. Angle of Repose explores contemporary states of rest. In the quest to understand and create an ideal society, Redstone extrapolates on the science and cultural aptitude of rest through figurative paintings on canvas and aluminum panel commingling forms of new technology, organic imagery and ephemeral brush marks that constitute a complex but dream-like examination of modernity and rest.

About the artist:

LA based artist, Cori Redstone grew up in the mountain west. Her artworks are most informed by her human rights advocacy, organizing and interest in behavioral psychology. Cori makes art work concerning pathological optimism and redemption through rebellion. She studied painting at the University of Utah where she received her BFA and went on to receive an MFA in art from CalArts in 2015. Her work has been exhibited across the United States including the Aspen Art Museum and the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art.
