On December 13th at 80Forty gallery, Lola will debut her first major exhibition in two years, and perhaps her most personal, “The Younger”. Her new series of twenty oil paintings also includes some of her largest to date. When we visited her studio in Los Angeles this week, she described it as “something to really get lost in”. Her childish characters embark from their storybook lands into unfamiliar territory- Lola’s childhood reality. The spirit of a ‘younger’ Lola is present in images of freckled young girls playing with reimaginatings of toys like Pacman and Pez. In this new world drawn from memory, Lola tells us the story of her creative upbringing. We took a moment to discuss her exhibition while she worked.
