Beth on my bedroom wall

Who is Beth? You ask. Someone did. And why this picture?

Beth is one of Alex Prager‘s women. Like most of Prager’s women and Prager herself, Beth dresses in retro attire, caught in the middle of an act or in the midst of a situation. At a cursory glance, you delight in the glamor and style of Prager’s women. But when you want to go deeper, you also find traces of discomfort, despair, distance, desire, … and sometimes mass consumption and materialism. I discovered Alex Prager just a few weeks ago, when some of her works were displayed as part of “People, Power and Places” exhibition at Davidson College.
