Los Angeles based artist Lola Rose Thompson was born in Studio City, California. She studied sculpture at the School of The Art Institute of Chicago and received her BFA from Otis College of Fine Arts. Thompson is interested in the idea that objects can receive and transmit information that they may or may not contain; and moreover, that these objects have vast stores of data and figures, that may be difficult to see.
“Lately I’ve been thinking about groups of people – clubs, fraternities, gatherings, secret societies – I like to image that through these paintings I can delve inside territory that is exclusive and make it inclusive – by allowing the viewer to identify with the subjects of the painting. The painting is the invitation to the party.” Lola Rose Thompson
