September 10 - October 8
Lola Gil

WHAT
The artist’s body of works began 2 years ago when she and her husband bought a big 120-year old house in Philadelphia, sight unseen, during the first summer of Covid. As she began to document and work out her life on the east coast, meeting strangers behind masks, and making new friends, she started making works that reflected her observations. Her life in lockdown magnified her curiosity of what it meant to feel alone, and how those circumstances changed her perception of reality. Her first solo exhibition in Asia, the exhibition is accompanied with a limited edition sculpture, ‘The Accountant’.

WHY
Greatly inspired by Salvador Dali, Yves Tanguy, and Rene Magritte, the American self-taught artist’s paintings merges Surrealism and Symbolism, allowing viewers to travel through the dream-like narratives at play in her works. Gil’s characters are frequently seen through the lens of a translucent object, the distortion a means of exemplifying the complexity of humankind. The deliberate ambiguity present throughout her work permits her audience to sometimes see themselves or simply to escape into the tranquil world of Gil’s imagination.
