Walking in The City
Praz-Delavallade Los Angeles is pleased to present its first solo exhibition by Guy Yanai. Yanai’s practice is fueled by fables, stories and hymns—each painting a reflection of the pragmatic side of our life. In his isolated moments one may find a smiling child, a big splash, lonely banana, bristling cactus, modernist lamp, a singing bird or a tiny boat gliding on placid waters below a clear sky. These individual vignettes bleed into one another and could continue forever, suspended in time. Many of Yanai’s subjects are intentionally recognizable and commonplace, rendered into a pixelated appearance.
Praz-Delavallade is pleased to announce the fourth exhibition in Paris by New York and Berlin-based artist John Miller. In this body of work, Miller presents five silkscreen paintings, ten coffee mugs, and a digital slide show, all of which refer to how people inhabit public spaces. He has drawn inspiration from Michel de Certeau’s essay « Walking in the City » from his acclaimed book, The Practice of Everyday Life, published in 1980.
