Petra Cortright First Solo Exhibition 'Niki,Lucy,Lola,Viola' Opening @ The Depart Foundation in Los Angeles

Depart Foundation presents the first solo exhibition of works by Los Angeles based artist Petra Cortright. Curated by Paul Young, the exhibition will present an immersive viewing experience that features large-scale flash animations, new video works and animated digital paintings. 'Niki,Lucy,Lola,Viola' will feature a series of new video works and animations by Cortright, compiled from open-source, screensaver software, and purchased virtual strippers. “Niki”, “Lucy”, “Lola” and “Viola”, are the virtual erotic dancers purchased by Cortright, from readily available online software, to populate her own synthetic and painterly landscapes and green screen voids. Presented within an immersive installation environment, which will include atmospheric audio components, these works self-consciously offer an infinite virtual redundancy in their repetition and absence of real-time. The exhibition will be on view until September 12, 2015 at the Depart Foundation Project Space9105 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles. photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper
