Candy Magazine

LEX PRAGER'S WORLD'S APART IN THE DEPTHS OF WHAT RESEMBLES CALIFORNIA AND THE SURROUNDING DESERTS, BACKYARDS AND HIGHWAYS TO THE BEACH. IT'S EERIE, SAD AND BRIMFUL OF MYSTICAL STORIES THAT END IN KILLINGS. HER WORK SPARKLES WITH GLOSS AND OVER PRODUCTION. THE HEAT OF THESE PARTICULAR WORKS PLAY TRICKS ON THE MIND, YOU THINK YOU SEE HAPPINESS AND CONTENT IN A POST 60’S VALHALLA, BUT IT’S CLAMMY, SWEAT AND NERVES. A NIGHT CASE WITH MAKE UP, HAIRSPRAY, BUBBLE GUM AND A SMITH AND WESSON FOR TROUBLE SHOOTING LATER. AN ESCAPE PLAN AND A PICK UP TRUCK THAT DUMPS YOU BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. NAIL ON THE HEAD, PRAGER HAS CAPTURED ANGST IN A MESSED UP AMERICA. DIRT – SLEAZY, STICKY AND TEARFUL TO THE END. SIXTY FIVE IN THE SHADE.
