The Feminine Sublime

  • Los Angeles, California United States (map)

Curated by Constance Mallinson. Five Los Angeles -based female painters: Merion Estes, Yvette Gellis , Virginia Katz, Constance Mallinson, and Marie Thibeault upend traditional ideas of the sublime- a theme historically used by male painters to represent the domination of man’s reason over nature and “the other”- with new feminist and environmentalist perspectives.

Their large-scale paintings encourage viewers to consider the environment and humanity’s impact on it, as well as the confining categorizations that have limited and defined genders, races, and class structures throughout history.
