This artwork is from a recent series called Lilac Aura and is about night blooming flowers inspired by spending time in upstate New York in the spring of 2016.
The lilacs were in bloom and their high, tickling fragrance was often present, almost like a shape or form that one could flow through.
The paintings -almost to the extent of Prest’s wingspan-are subtle and atmospheric, like the night scents.
The artist was not only inspired by the natural fragrances but also the feeling of outdoor shape-spaces as they responded to temperatures and weather.
