Angela Dufresne at Hammer Museum Projects

By AMARA BROOKS
 
In her first solo museum exhibition, Angela Dufresne shows compelling and innovative large-scale landscapes with modernist architectural structures, often modified and reworked in futuristic locales. The transparent quality of the vibrantly colored paint, as well as underpainting, gives the works an impressionistic and dreamlike quality. Dufresne’s futures are romantic rather than apocalyptic. Creating her own imaginary collaborations through collage, citing music and film in addition to design and.architecture, she makes work that bravely explores our histories and jumps full-force ahead.
