Acrylic on fiberglass, signed by the artist.
Celebrating freedom and spontaneity as well as the Sunset Strip's role in allowing musicians to blaze their own paths.
Lana Gomez's work has a sense of freedom and heart that reflects the boundless, yet kind rebel that she is as an artist. After studying art at the University of Tennessee, Gomez moved to Los Angeles, where she continued to experiment with acrylics and different mixtures of materials. Her painting style is inspired by Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollack, Morris Louis, and other legendary abstract expressionists, but is set in the 21st century. Gomez's work caught the eye of famed interior designer Kelly Wearstler, which led to several fruitful collaborations including serving as the resident painter at Wearstler's design studio in 2008-2009. Wearstler then commissioned Gomez to do a mural-sized piece, featured in her book, Hue. Gomez continues to push the boundaries in her work and opened her own gallery space in West Hollywood in November 2011. Today, her pieces are featured everywhere from the legendary Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills to outdoor venues, office buildings, and private residences. Her work has also been featured in trend-setting publications such as House Beautiful, Lonny, Los Angeles Confidential and The New Yorker.
