I am so pleased to announce my first solo show of the year, opening Valentines evening at the lovely Link & Pin Gallery on E. 6th Street. I first showed at the Link & Pin last year with a group of talented figurative artists, and am very grateful for the opportunity to introduce some new and reconfigured pieces along with a body of seasoned works in an exhibit themed "Attachments". The idea of attachments came to me as I began to explore opportunities to integrate dimensional and tactile elements to my paintings with more intentionality than I had previously. The integration of attachments in some instances began to draw into sharp focus the emotional, spiritual, and allegorical attachments already present in my work. (And in all of our lives...both good and bad).
Attachments: Where nature and divine clasp. The oil paintings and mixed media art works of Lawrence Jolly reflect the innate emotional, spiritual, and physical connections we have with each other, the things we cherish, and our understanding of God. As a Contemporary Narrative Realist, Jolly tells through his art exquisite stories reflecting a broad range of shared human experience. A joyful mash-up of Dali and Rockwell, Jolly’s work is an amalgam of boldly rendered figurative, animal, and environmental subject matter, woven into magically ethereal settings in oil and mixed media.
