Live Long and Prosper is an exhibition by New-York artist Jessica Voorsanger. In Live Long and Prosper, Jessica Voorsanger is presenting a new series of paintings in which she imagines the paintings she would make if she were artist-in-residence on The Starship Enterprise.
Voorsanger’s established practice exploring issues surrounding popular culture and celebrity takes a radical departure in this new series of paintings juxtaposing vintage fabrics with toxic and vibrant colours. She refers to them as ‘painted collages’. The faded, patterned vintage fabrics in contrast with the vibrant poured and dripped paint locate the work in its questioning of what a sci-fi utopian future could hold.
