I was thrilled to learn that artist Natasha Law’s paintings are on exhibit at the MaxMara store in Beverly Hills right now! I’ve been a fan of her work for many years (probably since I saw Sara Gilbane’s workspace in Domino?), so the opportunity to see these large-scale Pop Art-like pieces in person would be, most likely, once in a lifetime for me.
Law’s exhibit titled “Inside Out” features women in the act of undressing — awkward yet intriguing, raw yet feminine, abstract yet suggestive…and thoroughly modern. Law says of her subjects, “It’s become really important for me that I work with my friends as models, as the resonance of that affection and relationship is hopefully there. There is some quality of real, everyday female ‘whatness’ that I don’t get tired of exploring.”
Here’s a sampling of her work…
