OPENING RECEPTION, MARCH 23 6-8:00PM
Oil and Cotton is pleased to announce the exhibition of the recent work of Lillian Paige Walton. The opening reception will be hosted at Oil and Cotton on Saturday, March 23 from 6:008:00PM. The event is free to the public, with food and beverages provided.
The show’s title, Linear Movement, echoes the calligraphic, organic, and obsessive marks that characterize Lillian Paige Walton’s recent body of work. Linework serves as the foundation for the two and three dimensional works that Walton has been developing from a series of drawings
she created in mid 2012. Though she primarily employs painting and drawing mediums, Walton describes her current method of working most closely resembling collage technique. Walton takes disparate elements from a variety of sources (which Walton cites as ranging from Surrealist painting, household objects, to Devo album art ) and combines them with various methods of mark making. The resulting abstract compositions are reminiscent of aquatic landscapes, science fiction Bmovies, and bewitched breakfast foods...all of which, considering Walton’s diverse canon of influences, likely serve as inspiration.
Lillian Paige Walton received a BFA in Studio Art and a BA in Art History from the University of North Texas in 2012. She has participated in numerous group and juried exhibitions in the DFW metroplex. Her work was recently selected for the Rising Eyes of Texas 2013. She currently lives and works in Denton, Texas.
