Marjorie Norman Schwarz at 12.26


Stills is Marjorie Norman Schwarz’s first exhibition at 12.26’s Los Angeles location. Schwarz presents nine paintings of seemingly mundane subject matter including animals, parks, and bars. The artist drew inspiration from a variety of sources, including her phone, polaroids found scattered across her home, and daily interactions such as her cat perched on the window. 

This stunning body of work is a move away from her regular abstraction and a step towards figuration as a tool for reinterpretation. Despite this departure, her familiar snapshots of daily life, presented as small-scale oil on linen works, feature atmospheric and complex surfaces typical of her earlier paintings.
