Prest plans the color palettes in response to her experiences with the visual environment of daily life.

The work is grounded in color relationships, so she begins each painting by building the surface up with layers of color over the course of months. When the surface color reaches a point where it feels right, Prest begins applying lines, one at a time, by hand. She embraces the painterly quality of the marks, allowing variations in thickness and vibrancy to convey the material echo of her hand.

Sometimes the perceptual effects of the work emerge purely out of gradation and color relationships. Other times, Prest creates elaborate, geometric, linear matrixes that pull the eye into fluctuating optical experiences.
