A posthumous solo exhibition of work by multidisciplinary artist Kaari Upson (her first in LA in a decade) is on view at Sprüth Magers, highlighting the vigor and curiosity that Upson brought into her robust oeuvre. Several of the works begin as miniatures (either painted, whittled, or found) that are then enlarged to create idiosyncratic cast objects laced with memory and pathos. I talked to Greater LA’s Steve Chiotakis about the body of work and Upson’s interest in the banality of the everyday, the interiority of the human psyche, and the trauma that can be laced within the domestic. Listen to the segment.
