Exhibition Text for Petra Cortright, orange blossom princess fucking buttercup, Carl Kostyál, London, 2016.

007goldeneye.sexual_videoconferencing_charactercheatsharks.edu, 2016, is one of Petra Cortright’s hypnotically beautiful, digital paintings, that, in the tradition of pioneering artists like the late Jeremy Blake, explores painterly concerns in digital space.

“Where Impressionism’s heyday hypnotized us with its dynamic vibrancy in indulging the wondrous relish of the ordinary, Cortright’s new digital formalism unmoors the cognitive comforts of the private in a seductive sumptuousness of pageantry and inexhaustible possibilities.”

Valerie Mindlin, Artforum, 2016
