Lila Villalobos

Artist Statement Submitted 2020

I have been exploring platonic and familial relations in the vein of affection, representing the idyllic qualities these relationships can possess. The clarity of the line between the affectionate and romantic for me is hazy at best. How deep can the quality of a purely platonic relationship truly extend? I also dip into themes of rampant loneliness and isolation that increases with younger generations, the generated feelings of solitude, and the barriers that keep us from connecting with others. These subjects have permeated my life and the lives and loves of others. I portray our connections to each other as individuals and to each other as the human race.
