BIANCA FIELDS TELLS PHILLIP EDWARD SPRADLEY ABOUT HER NEW EXHIBITION IN MY BAG
Phillip Edward Spradley | June 10, 2022
Through thoughtful observation Bianca Fields has developed a painterly understanding of the dark undertones within familiar American popular culture icons, depicted in children’s stories, books, and television and how the psychological impact translates to our contemporary culture.
Fields grew up in Cleveland, Ohio where she attended Cleveland Institute of Art College. After receiving her BFA in painting she moved to Kansas City, Missouri where she maintains her studio practice.
In My Bag is Fields’ inaugural solo exhibition with Steve Turner in Los Angeles. The exhibition comprises 21 paintings that vary in scale and highlight Fields’ capacity of juxtaposing mediums, colors, and animal figures. Using oil sticks, oil paint, acrylic paint, spray paint, and several drawing materials the paintings aggressively illuminate bright and animated calamities.
