Paradigm Gallery is pleased to announce Representative, an exhibition of new figurative and politically-charged works by Contemporary artist Lauren Rinaldi, opening* on August 28, 2020 and remaining on view through September 19, 2020. Rinaldi’s figurative oil paintings and works on paper explore identity, femininity, representation, sexuality and empowerment. For her fourth solo show at Paradigm, Rinaldi expands on these themes by focusing in on the powerful and diverse women found in American politics today.  In lieu of an opening reception, Paradigm will be hosting a free digital event. It will include a live artist Q&A, gallery walkthrough and discussion. Space is limited, so interested guests will need to register at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lauren-rinaldi-roxana-azar-alex-kovacs-opening-live-artist-qa-tickets-116665825625. 

Artist ( Description ): 

Lauren Rinaldi's work inhabits the space where objectification, female power and sexual empowerment intersect and blur. She uses oil paintings, mixed media drawings and sketches as her vehicles to explore ideas about intimacy, gaze, body-image, sexuality and self-Identity. She looks to the women in her life for inspiration and works to weave their experiences with her own to create a shared narrative. Through observing the nature of women seeking affirmation under the guise of anonymity online, she also is informed by the influence social media has on female identity and how detachment from the depictions of the reality of the self affects and reveals who women desire to be.

 

Lauren was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1983. She received her BFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art in 2006. She is represented by Paradigm Gallery + Studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and currently resides in Philadelphia with her husband and son.

Venue ( Address ): 

746 S. 4th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147
