Ibiza-based, dutch-born artist Lolo Loren lives between worlds. She studied economics. Worked in fashion and interior design in Paris and Amsterdam. In 2006 she moved with her family to Ibiza to completely change course and do her first exposition with only paintings. Without conscious intention later in the years her photography became more and more important and popular. It became a good variety and keeps, in her eyes, art interesting to make and to see. Painting was a wedge to drive between the bricks of convention that threatened to surround her. Her art arises from a fearless impulse to explore outside the barriers. Every action starts with a thought, the same goes for painting in Lolo her point of view. Whilst Lolo Loren works in her studio the painting arises through the process of using different materials and paint in a state of almost subconsciousness the message of the painting will be slowly revealed. There is actually never a plan what to paint or what to show the world. The creation happens in the space in between, like a state of hypnose. Sometimes it takes years for Lolo to understands the painting she made.
 
 
In the beginning she was experimenting with paint and canvas in an Amsterdam squat “you can’t paint the way I do in your living room” she notes, Lolo has erred on the side of bold. Many of her grand-scale paintings include a mix of materials like cement, clay, sand, raw pigments, extra pieces of canvas, Arabic gum and layers of epoxy. The mixed media canvases are painted with layers of clear gloss to bond the contrasting elements. This pragmatic technique emerges as a poignant metaphor for the ceaseless struggle to integrate life’s disparate elements. Living longer on the Island the love for nature began to integrate in her way of thinking and the glossy made place for the authentic rough canvasses of pure cotton.
 
 
Intuition, life adventures and experiences fuel Lolo’s work and she invites her audience to participate in the creative process. Rather than impose narratives or explanations she invites people to immerse themselves in her paintings and photographs and discover their own stories “I like when people tell their view and thoughts especially on a painting”. She says.
 
-Everyone goes through different life fases and withhold different emotions, every response is very personal and different in intensity how they react to a painting. – My vocation pulls me, I feel the need to make this world more beautiful with my art and passion for it, therefor I love these interactions.
I am here to make art you like, love, to make you feel, challenge you-
