Artspace111 is proud to present the latest solo exhibition Talisman, featuring artist Layla Luna.

Talisman is a series of paintings and small sculptures. Luna’s illustrative style uses motifs and palates of the desert in combination with text to present the viewer with a narrative rendering of time and emotional space. Luna’s images take place in desert paintings of West Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. Small clay sculptures of southwest-dwelling animals honor the amulets, trinkets, and talismans. “Sacred souvenirs”, as Luna calls them, have an ability to hold the magic of an experience and later serve as reminders of the lessons we learned during the journey. The desert and her inhabitants are incredible teachers if you take the time to know them. They demonstrate that tough paths can gift big rewards and you’ll always be pointed in the right direction if you listen to your landscape.

Talisman will be on view June 6 – July 13, 2024. Opening reception, June 6 from 5:30 – 7:00pm.

Visitors may also visit the gallery during regular gallery hours, Tuesday – Friday 11am -5pm, and Saturday 11am -2pm. “Layla Luna’s tender renderings of storytelling through the desert landscape and her unique illustrative style paints an emotional portrait of the lessons of life through nature as an ally.” – Margery Gossett, Artspace111
