Tomorrow is your lucky day
April 14–May 27, 2022
Acclaimed French artist Inès Longevial makes her highly anticipated FIAF Gallery debut with the solo exhibition Tomorrow is your lucky day.
The deeply intimate new portrait series features vibrant color combinations that uniquely highlight the features of each of the subjects. Longevial is known for her intricate use of light and color to depict wide emotions in her portraits. Her exploration of color comes to full fruition in these paintings, with warm colors accentuating the curves of every face and body. With thick strokes of paint and wide panes of color, she instills her portraits with an otherworldly quality.
Exhibition curated by Lola Siena.
French artist Inès Longevial’s work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Berlin, San Francisco, Paris and New York.
Born in 1990, Inès Longevial grew up in southwestern France. Eldest of her siblings, she would always rush for her canvas rather than through the fields.
After a degree in Applied Arts, she moved to Paris at 23. Across massive oil self-portraits, the warm colors of her childhood are reborn. Under the influence of the masters of the early 20th century, she draws her inspiration from light and nature. There is much more than meets the eye to her seemingly mute characters, which reveal themselves to be multiple and mystic, through a kaleidoscope of sensual shadows.
Lola Siena is the curator of this exhibition.
Lola Siena, born and raised in Athens, studied Art History at NYU. While living in NY she fine-tuned her art knowledge and experience. She has overseen and worked closely with various art collectors including George Terasaki, the legendary collector of objects from the indigenous cultures of North America. Among her recent projects is a global exchange program between artists and Greece.
She has previously curated two exhibitions at FIAF: Roman Cochet’s Supersonic Melancholia and Stephen Antonakos’s FORM COLOR SPACE.
