This piece was the first in a series combining figure with abstract color fields. The figure is almost ghost like blending into the color. I used many different techniques to achieve the texture on the left side of the canvas. It was a fun experiment that led to many more piece like it. The title Rise Up refers to the image as well as the rise of this style in my work.
At its core my work reflects on relationships of color, space, and the emotional rollercoaster of our interpersonal relationships. Sometimes silly, sometimes dark, my work is a reflection of me. As a result my work sometimes manifest itself into an animalistic interpretation of life or a swirling madness of color. I often use the human form as a means to express something as well. My goal is to allow the viewer into my most vulnerable thoughts, through my eyes, onto the canvas.
Hi, I'm LuLu Allen. Thanks for visiting my portfolio. I've been an artist as long as I can remember. Creating visual candy is how I feel the most like myself. I'm an LA native and love my home town city. LA is a great place for art and inspiration. My work is inspired by my life, sometimes silly and playful sometimes deep and rich with dark color and figures.
