Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Chromatic Personality” an exhibition of works by Logan Ledford, Louisiana's contemporary color theory artist from August 21 to September 12, 2018, presenting a wonderful new collection of beautiful avant-garde abstract paintings.
Logan is able to create a completely unusual and powerful body of work by using thick textured paint and mixed media against a single toned color background. Her abstract paintings display a unique design with wonderful attention to detail, utilizing minimal compositions with acrylic paint, liquid gold leaf, acrylic sheets, and vinyl. Simple natural beauty and elements of nature are the starting point for her work, filtering through emotions in their sporadic color and organic form with grid-like or centered circle compositions. Sensations of a particular moment in their purest element drawn from everyday objects, like a pallet of makeup from a woman's purse, the plastic of a Barbie doll, or clothing from a crowd of people, are the inspirations of this series.
Working on mostly larger canvases, the presence of these pop pieces make a dramatic statement; but once looking closer at the details, the viewer is able to discover exciting, rich textures by the use of mixed media. Logan's passion for schematically designing each canvas depicting geometric shapes over and over again, mimicking simple, recognizable forms is a joy to discover. Each canvas is repetitive, but each individual and unique with its own theme. Standing in front of her paintings is like journeying into a very strong world of color, where the senses are completely motivated, exciting us to discover Logan's unique patterns seamlessly with the imagination.
Logan Ledford was born in Baton Rouge and received her Bachelor of Interior Design from Louisiana State University. She studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts and now lives and works in New Orleans, Louisiana. Ledford has exhibited in many places in Louisiana and her work have been reviewed by numerous prestigious newspaper and websites such as Garden & Gun, LSU Art & Design College Press, The Scout Guide, and The English Room Blog. This year she will continue to show her work at the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Silhouettes of a Mémoire” an exhibition of works by JM Robert. A striking collection of fine art mixed media with his latest works that allure beauty and exuberance.
Scarcely evoked, the facial features are already vanishing. It seems that the faces were sketched, but did not have time to be completely formed. It is also a trace of an anonymous passage, a presence that is fragile, precarious, and always feminine. His abstract backgrounds of bright and flashy colors contrast with the black graphic by which he captures characteristic expressions of female faces. On his canvases, colors burst into a myriad of fragments that no longer manage to find their meaning to take shape. The use of vivid colors often help to classify his work in the category of pop art but he crosses the boundaries of style to create pieces which exude a timeless emotion, bridging classical and contemporary, creating a completely unique style of his own.

Daniel Fiorda & Ro Barragan
Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Typos” an exhibition of works by Daniel Fiorda & Ro Barragan. An intriguing selection of works by two Argentinian artists.
Fiorda links past and present, old and new, with a subtle irony and criticism. The works become a critical mirror for our post-Industrial society and its polluting daily activity. Fiorda’s works have found a key place in the great currents of Contemporary sculpture. Daniel Fiorda’s sculpture breaks up the logic of representation characterized by traditional Western-Art sculptures. His works are made with discarded metals assembled in a complex and busy structure that recalls a Neo-Baroque approach to art. The sculpture's material becomes a morphological generator of its figurative shape. As an archeologist, Fiorda captures the “presence” and the elusive meaning of each work of art, most lately with discarded remnants of the industrial world.
Ro Barragán has a Master in Aesthetics and Art Theory by the National University of La Plata in Argentina. She developed her artistic since 1994 participating in collective and individual exhibitions in Painting, Engraving, Objects, Digital Art, Installations and Interactive Art, in Buenos Aires and other cities of Argentina, Bogotá, Rome, and Miami. She also develops art activities in the context of the street, through stickers and posters. She is a Teacher of the Engraving and Complementary Printed Art Workshop at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the National University of La Plata and a teacher of the typography workshop at the Museo de Calcos y Escultura comparada Ernesto de la Cárcova, city of Buenos Aires.
