Who is Petra Cortright?
Petra Cortright (July 19, 1986) is a Los Angeles, California based artist working in video, painting and digital media.

Petra Cortright was born in Santa Barbara, California. She studied at Parsons The New School for Design in New York and California College of the Arts in San Francisco. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.


Cortright’s works in video, painting and digital media. She is well known her video works presented on YouTube and in gallery environments, her videos playfully explore formal properties of video software and representation of physical bodies in digital spaces. Cortright also makes intricate paintings using digital software which blend figurative and abstract elements, often printed on fabrics.

In vvebcam (2007), her first video, Cortright films herself while playing with the special effects built into the webcam software used to make the video. It is often noted that her physicality in vvebcam, as captured by the webcam, mirrors that of the work's viewer. vvebcam has also been heralded as shortly predating the rise of the "self-portraiture practice known as the selfie".[1] On Saturday, December 10, 2011, vvebcam (2007) was removed by YouTube because of Cortright's extensive use of "offensive" key words.

In 2011 Cortright collaborated with Ilia Ovechkin to create Video Catalog, a work where the monetary value of her videos is determined by an algorithm based on YouTube views.[2]

Vicky Deep in Spring Valley (2012), marks the beginning of Cortright's video work with virtual strippers. Cortright lifts the dancing girls from VirtuaGirl, a software that makes chroma keyed footage of "strippers" available for download. These videos are layered against flash images of fantastical digital worlds that are reminiscent of animated desktop wallpaper.[3]

Cortright was selected to participate in the 2013 Frieze Art Fair in London where she produced her self-portrait, Bridal Shower (2013),[4] a film where she experiments with the physical qualities of a production studio.[5] The film was subsequently broadcast on British public television station Channel 4.

In 2014, Cortright began a collaboration with fashion designer Stella McCartney, creating a series of videos where Cortright uses glitches and video manipulation to showcase and contrast patterns on the garments designed by McCartney that she models.[6]

Her works have been shown at the New Museum in New York,[7] Rhizome, the Venice Biennale.,[8] the 2010 01SJ Biennial in San Jose, California,[9] and the 12ième Biennale d'art contemporain de Lyon.[10]

Lot 97: ** Petra Cortright (b. 1986) - Frigidity Cure Randy Pills, 2014

Auction Date: Jun 30, 2015

Estimate: £25,000 - £35,000

Description: digital painting on aluminium 64 x 48 in., 162.5 x 121.9 cm Provenance: Private Collection, USA (acquired directly from the artist). Petra Cortright is a leading exponent of a new movement known as post-internet art. The understanding of this term refers not to a time after the internet, but rather to an internet state of mind, to think in the fashion of the network. In the context of artistic practice, the category of the post-internet describes an art object created with a consciousness of the networks within which it exists, from conception and production to dissemination and reception. Cortight harnesses the internet either as a medium to produce her 'paintings' or as a vehicle to broadcast films. Espousing a rough home-video aesthetic, she often records herself performing simple acts and gestures, such as kicking a football, tugging at a tree branch, or dancing around a bedroom. Her 'paintings' are generated from images downloaded from the internet and processed through photoshop to create an abstract composition, printed digitially onto thin transparent film which is then mounted onto aluminium. This technique allows metallic reflections to shine through the colours of the work, giving it an extra 'machined' quality, reminding us of the removal of the artist's hand....
