"The original painting was part of a group exhibit with Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. It was an open theme, centered around the idea that the works be on the smaller more affordable side for new collectors. As someone who loves art, but can’t afford it, I wanted to make a bold and beautiful painting that would resonate in viewers, no matter the size.
I had just moved back to the states from a 2 year visa in England. So I wanted to take all of that pent up energy from the move and the emotions I was feeling, visualize what it may look like and free myself. I like to learn from my experiences, and turn them into something beautiful. Both visually, as well as for my own spirit. To me this painting symbolizes both leaving something behind, as well as starting a new. All flames promote new growth, and that’s the way I want to see the world." - Lola Gil

We need harmony, lyrics, and a visual escape from reality, because reality has become somewhat of a nightmare. War, genocide, hunger, death, disaster, political disappointment. I paint to start a positive dialog amongst strangers. And I paint because it is my most precious gift in life. I sing through my brushes the way a song might touch your heart and knock you off your feet so that you might feel for one moment and forget how the media desensitizes you and holds you in its grips with fear tactics.
I like to invent, imagine, and execute a place full of space where the world can evolve into a magical copacetic machine, sparing the disintegration of our earth and harm to innocent creatures and beings. If not for the ability to paint, my voice might become just another static white noise.Of all my childhood memories, the ones which stick with me most are from pure imagination.
If I can bring you back to your own early memories for even one minute as you gaze upon what has become my life’s work, you just might recognize a not too distant feeling of pure emotion as you were once so innocent. I wish upon a star that this feeling might have a domino effect, ease a day, and bring a smile. Because a smile is infectious and if our hearts are happy, nothing can stop us.
