Mel Prest is a non-objective painter whose work is focused on color and perceptual visual relationships. Prest explores color phenomena observed in landscape and light, using color combinations to create optical mirages. The intersecting lines in her works are hand painted, creating a soft geometry that amplifies our perception of movement and color. Sun Cloud integrates silver gray and yellow to create an immersive canvas that evokes the often hazy light and marine atmosphere encountered in the Bay Area. She received her MFA from Mills College.
