The America Martin Gallery is proud to present Lolitas, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles based artist, Diane Gaeta. Emerging from cross-continental social media correspondence that traded the boundaries of traditional language communications for imagery, Lolitas is a manipulated translation of photographs taken by a Parisian teenager. In a series of lush, colorful, fantastical drawings, Gaeta honors the original images and captures their life in illustration.
The immediacy of social media allowed Gaeta and the Parisian teenager to collaborate despite a language barrier, with the teenager’s Facebook photographs serving as a platform for Gaeta’s interest in the complexity of female adolescence. “I literally sorted through hundreds of angst-ridden portraits before settling upon the final illustrated few.”
Lolitas will run for 2 days only. Last day will be October 28th from 11am to 3pm. For more details visit, AmericanMartinGallery.com.
