Exhibition: Ipsum Factum
Artist: Lola
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 27, 2010 from 8‑11pm
On View: March 27 – April 14, 2010
This March Los Angeles artist Lola unveils her magic at Corey Helford Gallery with a new collection of works entitled “Ipsum Factum”. Lola’s second solo exhibition at the gallery is her most highly anticipated to date. Through the artist’s unique process of visual storytelling, Lola explores catalysts for new beginnings as well as the forward momentum of positive change to be the best that one can be. Lola’s enchanting mini-vignettes blossom from the vibrant challenge of discovering newness and liberation of finding one’s authentic voice. “Every day is a lesson and a challenge, with noticeable evolution and growth” adds Lola, and for her upcoming show, she finds inspiration in being “pulled along by the moon as the unexpected guest, mesmerized by its significance for the love of a story”.

For “Ipsum Factum”, Lola creates narratives that are more metaphorical than before, illustrating harmonious relationships between humans and animals. Her palette takes a softer direction, adopting soothing neutral, earthy tones, and her work increases both in scale and content. Each piece originates from her personal selection of signature antique frames. Open to the public, the reception for “Ipsum Factum” will take place on Saturday, March 27 from 8 to 11pm, and the show will be exhibited until April 14, 2010.

Lola was born and raised in Riverside California. Growing up with an artistic father helped sparked Lola’s interest in art at an early age, and she began developing her creative and technical skills more diligently when she reached her teens. A self-taught painter, Lola takes great care in the unique details of each piece, with a distinct visual evolution from each new body of work she exhibits, displaying them in handpicked antique frames she finds at flea markets. Featured in renowned collections worldwide, her work has been exhibited in prestigious galleries and museums including Yves LaRoche, Robert Berman Gallery, Jonathan LeVine Gallery, Dorothy Circus, and Riverside Art Museum.
