Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Lack of Pleasure, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist, Jillian Evelyn. Lack of Pleasure is Evelyn's inaugural solo exhibition at Hashimoto Contemporary and debut solo exhibition in New York City.
The exhibition features a series of new paintings, depicting stylized and angular female figures set in ambiguous environments. Continuing her exploration of themes around womanhood, as well as the struggles and anxiety surrounding societal expectations, the works featured in Lack of Pleasure look to the present moment, capturing introspective scenes which capture an all-too-familiar feeling of apathy. Each figure is contemplative and self-examining, floating in color fields which separate them from being grounded to a particular place.
The artist states,
"I don’t think I’m alone in saying that this last year has been difficult. I think a lot of people related to the New York Times calling out this feeling as “languishing”. That feeling is all I could conjure when I sat down to draw, its all I could see in a lot of the people around me...I was looking for ways to dissociate. This body of work is just that, it’s being stuck & the moments we try to push past it."
