AN ENDLESSLY REFLECTIVE NET OF JEWELS – VICTORIA LOBREGAT

12 July – 2 August 1997.

Victoria Lobregat (b. Manila, Philippines).

An Endlessly Reflective Net of Jewels was Victoria Lobregat’s exhibition of new paintings. A series of small canvas boards arranged into discrete grids formed an unusual narrative with fragments from everyday life and symbols of different cultures. Lobregat combines motifs from a variety of sources ranging from Buddhist prayer symbols to logos fro surf brands. Having worked as an illustrator and designer for Hot Tuna, Lobregat is familiar with the power of the symbol. Employing an idiosyncratic logic she pairs the spiritual with consumer desire.
