Lolo Loren’s Amsterdam Expo
October 31- November 1 2017
The world does not belong to us.
There is more to human existence and to reality itself than science can ever have access to.
For Lolo Loren’s new exhibition, the theme is green. Progress and eternal life. The two day event will take place in the beautiful Random House in Amsterdam. The venue’s own green walls complement the paintings and photos that are all related to the colour green in some way. In the works exhibited, green is the colour of life and nature but also of growth, harmony and safety. It can also signify mystical or magical properties.
There is almost no area of human life today that is not touched by the effects of science and technology. Yet the role that science has, or should have, in relation to human life is not always clear. This is an urgent issue because without the guidance of ethics, conscientiousness and compassion, scientific advances can cause us more harm than good. The artist is particularly interested in exploring our limitations as human beings. Who we are and what motivates us. What is real and who we are in a world where nature and man-made artifice, reality and illusion, human and non-human are in a constant tug of war. In this context, pursuit of happiness can be a slippery slope, especially when we are motivated by material wealth and fame. However, if we can find happiness in the process of achieving our goals, and are not be distracted by comparison or competition, we will succeed.
For Lolo Loren, art is a reminder of what really is. Buying art should be more than just owning a loved object that may appreciate in value; it can be an act of philanthropy. It can serve as a confirmation of the things we should appreciate more, such as nature or the mystery of life – how it takes us and all its beauty what comes with that. A constant reminder in the midst of our busy lives that nature doesn’t need us, we need nature.
The exhibition is open Tuesday and Wednesday, 9:00 – 22:00.
Champagne will be officially opened at 17.00 on Tuesday .
Lolo Loren is a mixed media visual artist and photographer who uses a range of materials in her work. Her paintings are usually built up of layers of varying materials, often fused together with layers of gloss coating that afford her work a highly aesthetic, three dimensional quality.
