MEY presents Allison Lu Wang in a solo exhibition titled Little After Sunset. The gallery will host a closing art party on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 from 5-7pm.
The solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Allison Lu Wang is a sprawling ode to the city of angels. The featured paintings and accompanying installations are kaleidoscopic visions of a city existing at the edges of reality and imagination.
MEY Allison Lu Wang
For Allison, Los Angeles is both setting and muse. Her layered dreamscapes feature iconic Hollywood landmarks and lush flora, speaking to the dichotomy of the city and resulting in worlds that are at once easily recognizable and entirely foreign. Inspired by her relationships, travels, and environment, Allison’s artistic process begins by handcrafting detailed collages from personal photographs, donated magazines, and coffee table books. Once complete, these collages are digitized and printed onto linen and canvas. Through oil painting and weaving fabrics such as silk onto the canvas, the artist personalizes her mixed-media portraits.
MEY was born of the idea that contemporary art is a communal endeavor. MEY aims to bring those passionate about art into a space where they feel empowered to engage earnestly with work being made by rising artists today.
Founded by two women determined to help dispel some of the art world’s elusivity, MEY seeks to build a community; a community that upholds the belief that art is inherently a series of exchanges—from artist to artwork, artwork to viewer, and so on.
