The exhibition is entitled will showcase eight of Victor’s large ink paintings, which she created during a six-month interdisciplinary artist residency with BNIM Architects San Diego. Working across disciplines, Victor creates art that explores the power and fluidity of storytelling, both visual and written, as it pertains to myths and narratives of the feminine. Her large ink paintings display historical symbols, lyrical incantations, astrological references, natural elements, and feminine figures.
To create this work, Lola employs a tri-tone palette: metallic gold, black, and cream. She uses traditional eastern art papers, brushes, and inks, and combines them with contemporary western pigments, dyes, and linguistic elements. These works stand gracefully 6-feet tall and 3-feet wide, and display brilliantly in light like sacred and ancient scrolls.
This body of work is mystical and enchanting. Each work is a visual journey, presenting both a story and a question of its own, but to experience them together is a powerful moment that should not be missed.
Victor is a San Diego native, who has spent her adult life living, working, and exhibiting internationally. She is honored to unveil these new works for the first time in San Diego, and offer them in exhibition together at a new emerging artist gallery.
