Cut-outs and Cartoons, art and illustration by Long Beach artist Lara Odell, will be on display at the Long Beach Public Library, 101 Pacific Ave., through April 30. The exhibit will be on view in the display cases located on the first floor of the library.
Odell is an artist working in both the commercial and fine-arts fields, usinggouache and assorted papers to create her cut-outs.
Evoking pathos, a dry humor and the absurd, the cut-outs address the ephemerality that defines consciousness and the fragility of identity. In her cartoons, tentative characters tolerate and express varying degrees of anxiety.
She has also worked extensively with printmaking, video and stop-motion animation.
Lara has art degrees from UC Irvine, SUNY Buffalo and The School of Art and Design, NYSCC at Alfred University, New York.
