Originally from Riverside, California, artist Lola Gil has lived and worked in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Bristol, England. Currently based in Philadelphia, Gil describes herself as a narrative painter. “Loosely through the lens of my own experiences, images come to me like flashes of discovery,” she explains. “I try my best to interpret and render these on canvas, in order to bring conversation and curiosities to the viewer.”
In recent years, Gil has been experimenting with portraiture through glass figures. Her interest in human connection allows her to observe and indirectly interpret the multifaceted aspects of ourselves, and our interactions with one another: “In this practice I am interested in empathy, openness, hearing, and discovery. As well as therapeutic release.”
