Victoria Lobregat: An Endlessly Reflective Net of Jewels

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.

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 – Lobregat combines motifs from a variety of sources ranging from Buddhist prayer symbols to logos from surf brands.
