Lola Gil’s stirring painted narratives and portraits return in a new show at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle. “Thirsty” collects several recent works, including continuations of her portraits in which subjects are reflected through vintage glass figurines. Gil was recently featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 48. “Thirsty” kicks off at the gallery on March 8.
“Throughout my career I have always been a painter of narrative escapism, with my work evoking personal connections for each individual viewer,” Gil says of her work. “Because it is executed in a surreal way, it allows the viewer to create their own story and meaning.” See more of Gil’s work from this show below.
