Lois Gold Creates Tactile Multi-Media Pieces Reflecting the Beauty of Nature
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Lois Gold in Portal to Enigma. The exhibition opens April 25, 2017 and runs through May 16, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 27 from 6-8 pm.
The mixed media paintings of Lois Gold are tactile and alluring, pulling viewers in with soft colors and intriguing textures, evoking feelings of peace and tranquility. Inspired by Impressionist painters like Pierre Bonnard and Claude Monet, as well as ancient frescoes, Gold utilizes a wide variety of materials and techniques to give her work not only depth of color, but of surface as well. She says she wants her paintings to be “felt as well as seen."
A few of the common materials Gold uses are gold leaf, beaded gels, handmade papers, pastels, sponges, stamps, and stencils, all of which she collages together with acrylic pigment, water washes, finger painting, and traditional brushwork. The resulting images range from landscapes, to still lifes, to abstract works that recall organic forms.
Gold was born in New York City, but has traveled the world and visited art museums extensively since childhood. She says her work is deeply personal, and describes the act of painting as a sensual experience reflecting her love of beauty and nature, and her passion for life.

About the Exhibition
Portal to Enigma
Agora Gallery is pleased to present Portal to Enigma, a new group exhibition exploring the possibilities of extreme abstraction and non-representational art. As its title suggests, this show is about finding meaning within compositions that can be obscure or even withholding. The work on display throws the spotlight on the non-literal components of visual depiction: texture, color, form, and arrangement in space. Portal to Enigma is a unique survey of the latest in abstraction.
Among the eight featured artists are some who play with landscape, some who play with figural studies, and some who work purely outside of representational boundaries. One artist fractures the human body into slices almost as if to show the movement of time across the canvas. Another depicts nature as a romantic, mysterious collection of impossibly rich colors. The exhibition includes experiments in pattern, texture, and highly intricate mark-making. These are some of the most energized, relentlessly curious abstract artists working in the field today.
