Larsen’s paintings are abstracted figurations with Japanese-inspired perspective; tracing-paper cutouts are used all across the canvas, giving her works a constructed appeal.

Mernet Larsen

Text by John Yau.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Mernet Larsen</I>.Mernet Larsen is the first monograph published on an American painter who has recently been rediscovered by the art world as a significant voice in the “extensive, possibly global conversation about how to portray modern, three-dimensional life on two-dimensional surfaces” (Roberta Smith, The New York Times). Larsen’s paintings are a complete world and, in that regard, belong to the tradition that includes Giorgio de Chirico and René Magritte. These worlds “reach toward” ours, even as they pull us in. Larsen’s paintings are abstracted figurations with Japanese-inspired perspective; tracing-paper cutouts are used all across the canvas, giving her works a constructed appeal. Their subjects include classrooms, coffee shops, vacation spots and malls--gathering places--as well as parodies of religious events such as the Resurrection. This monograph gives a full analysis of Larsen’s work of the past 30 years, with a focus on her oeuvre since 2000.

Mernet Larsen

"Mall Event" (2010), is reproduced from Damiani's excellent new monograph on painter Mernet Larsen. In his catalog essay, poet and critic John Yau writes, "We feel as if we should be looking at something we know, something familiar, something out of everyday life. The scene is a mall, a public space, which… has largely been abandoned as subject matter by painters and, more recently, even by photographers, who have chosen to use the Internet as their camera. Time has been halted so that all of it can be carefully gone over. In all of her work Larsen elevates the ordinary and banal into the domain of the astonishing. It is as if we never before looked at our lives so closely and carefully, which perhaps we haven't, certainly not like this." continue to blog
