Giant Robot is proud to present Myth & Magic, a solo show by Kathleen Lolley.
Lolley is a Louisville, Kentucky-based artist, animator, and comic-book maker whose two-dimensional characters suggest a fanciful but complex narrative. While many of her peers reflect upbringings with anime and comics, Lolley’s works are crafty, painterly, and timeless. Allusions range from fairy tales to Little Golden Books. In addition to galleries across the United States, her dreamy yet familiar works have appeared in indie-comics anthologies and album covers.
For the new show, Lolley is creating 15 medium-sized acrylic paintings on wood, depicting animals trying in various stages of escape from Owl Mountain. While the subject matter is familiar--including space ships and owls—she is adding new characters, such as squirrel, girls, and deer people, as well as enhancing the color palette with black and dark green.
The opening reception for Lolley will be held from 6:30PM until 10:00PM on Saturday, July 19. And the show will run through August 13th.
