Meg Cranston is an interdisciplinary artist. Since 1988, her works in painting, sculpture, performance and video along with numerous public and artist curatorial projects has been shown internationally.
Cranston’s works are based on a range of conceptual approaches that have helped to shape her creative process, for instance by using word play or coincidences. She thus joins a long tradition in L.A.’s art history in which artists such as John Baldessari and Ed Ruscha have pursued a conceptual approach in exploring the painting.
In this interview, we talked with Cranston about her artistic processes, as well as her works displayed in the exhibition Los Angeles – A Fiction.
