LA Spotlight: Esther Pearl Watson at Vielmetter Los Angeles

Esther Pearl Watson began making small paintings in January 2020 documenting the events in her life in her folk-artsy signature-style. At Vielmetter LA, she presents these works chronologically in uneven grids interspersed with black cloth banners handsewn with white numbers representing the count of Covid-19 deaths in the United States. Over time, the numbers grow, as do the banner sizes, from hundreds in March to hundreds of thousands in November 2020. The diaristic paintings link Watson's personal experience to this haunting reality. Read Jody Zellen's review on What's on Los Angeles.
