Californian artist @loie3107 creates mesmerising soft-focus abstractions that build on feminist history that engages with ideas of the human body and sexuality. Her luscious colour palette and undulating shapes calls to mind Judy Chicago's dinner party series and spray painted car hoods, as well as Georgia O'Keeffe's sun saturated hues. -
There is something bizarrely meditative about Loie's paintings, in part due to her ability to make her light work glow while maintaining a surreal fluidity. Sometimes her images recall a strange futuristic spirituality, or allude to disguised body parts. These awesome works have gained her critical acclaim and she was recently included in the brilliant @whitecubeofficial exhibition Dreamers Awake, charting the influence of surrealism in female artists' work. You can now see a whole wall of her paintings on display at @friezeartfair on the @pacegallery stand.
