Pen + Brush Inc. will kick-off the New Year with a retrospective of the work of photographer, Lola Flash, spanning more than three decades of her work in the New York City art scene.
A Retrospective of Photographer Lola Flash in 2018 begins with the artists’ series of works titled Gay A-Z in the 1990s, focusing on the AIDS crisis in New York City, continuing on to her current work, (sur)passing, ~ Large-format color portraits probing the impact that skin pigmentation plays on black identity and consciousness ~ and ‘SALT’, a series of portraits depicting women over 70, “set in their environment, illuminating wisdom that is often disregarded because of ageism.”
The New York based photographer, Lola Flash, challenges stereotypes in her work, while shinning a light on social, LGBT+ and feminist issues. Most recently, Flash was awarded an Art Matters grant, which allowed her to further two projects in Brazil and London.
A Retrospective of Photographer Lola Flash in 2018 will be on view from January 25 to March 27, 2018 at Pen + Brush Gallery located at 29 East 22nd Street in the Flatiron District. Opening Reception on Thursday, January 25 from 6-8pm.
