CHG Circa presents
Opening Reception Saturday, September 8, 2012 from 7-10pm
On View September 8 – October 6, 2012
To celebrate the inaugural opening of their newest space CHG Circa, gallerists Jan Corey Helford and Bruce Helford are pleased to present “Haro,” the highly-anticipated solo exhibition by artist Lola.
“Haro” reflects Lola’s most personal work to date. Based in Southern California her entire life, Lola recently relocated to the United Kingdom. She adds, “These paintings are reminders of what it means to chase a dream. I decided one year ago to change everything I know about comfort, leave my Los Angeles home, and save all I can to move myself and my girls to a cozy setting in England.”
“Haro” combines the daydreams of what we desire with the discipline it requires to make significant life changes, as Lola experienced during the year leading up to her show. Lola says, “It takes great sacrifice and a world of introspection, which I wasn’t exactly prepared for. We get so caught up with having ‘things’ — consumption. I decided to give it all away, put myself back in my childhood home and paint.”
Having sold out her first two shows, “Haro” is Lola’s third exhibition with Corey Helford Gallery, and for CHG Circa’s inaugural exhibition, she will unveil thirteen new paintings. While her palette remains soft and ethereal, her technique moves toward a more realistic aesthetic. Lola’s enchanting narratives continue to explore themes of discovery, hope and finding one’s authentic voice, despite life’s challenges. “I think this show, like all I work toward, has a silver lining.”
The opening reception for “Haro,” takes place on Saturday, September 8 at CHG Circa, and is open to the public. The exhibition will be on view through October 6, 2012.
