Cubist Spinoff is proud to present Cathy Lightfoot: Tail Light Scrolls, an exhibition of paintings of nighttime automobile taillights on expansive scrolls of kozo paper. These vibrant works are part of the artist’s unique survival strategy to endure lengthy work commutes at dawn and dusk through stressful Los Angeles traffic. Based upon direct observation, research, and the artist’s own photographs and sketches, these acrylic gouache works present bumper-to-bumper visual analyses of the intricacies of taillight design (and rear panels), nighttime optical sensitivities of the artist-driver, and subtle suggestions of altered consciousness. Lightfoot’s paintings constitute a profound link between the experience of urban Los Angeles and its rich history of Conceptual, Pop, and Optical art.
Please note: Cubist Spinoff is located at a garage behind a residence. Enter through the driveway gate. This is a two-day exhibition:
Saturday September 12 from 3-6PM and
Sunday September 13 from 3-6PM
