Creatures and Objects: The Unique Art of Lola York
Artist Lola York opens her debut solo exhibit titled CREATURES AND OBJECTS, in the Oresman Gallery at the Larchmont Public Library on January 11, and will continue to be on view through February 27. The art for Lola York’s CREATURE AND OBJECTS exhibit has been created in Mexico, then transported to Larchmont to be placed on display in the Larchmont Public Library’s Oresman Gallery. Several pieces have been created exclusively for this exhibit.
Lola York hails from Guanajuato, Mexico, where she has been developing collage in a very unique and particular way. Her technique is about mixing images from a variety of sources and adding strategic touches of watercolor and original drawing. She discovered that collage is not just about cutting and pasting pieces of paper. Rather, she believes it is important to create a new art form, blending varied elements together with an aim to achieve artistic harmony. Lola work with delicate drawings of female bodies, adding brilliant colors, textures and unique objects to her compositions. Lola´s artwork takes a decidedly whimsical view to the reality of life.
