Art News: Lola Montes Schnabel New Works at The Hole

13 Dec
2011

Five new works by Lola Montes Schnabel, created over the period of the last year, which comprise a suite of allegorically suggestive figurative paintings that use a shared five-color palette to great effect, will be on exhibit at The Hole NYC, December 16, from 6-9PM.

Each painting depicts an episode in a narrative of androgenous youth encountering each other on a remote Greek island. They depict a time of love before sexuality, with the nude youths, occasionally shrouded in sheepskins, romping playfully about the teal and tan landscape. In one work, a youth drags a dead albatross across an expanse, in another, the last in the series, the two figures come together in ecstasy, forever changing their innocent, idyllic world.

The exhibition runs through February 4, 2012.
