Palmer Earl’s paintings explore the original source of social constructs that put and keep women in the position they occupy today.

 Artist Palmer Earl’s solo exhibition “Illuminations” opens June 3, 2023 at Gallery 825, located at 825 N. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles. An opening reception is planned from 10 am to 5 PM on June 3rd. The show is on view from June 3 to June 30, 2023.  

 

Earl is inspired by ancient artifacts, scriptures and texts that recount a time when women were equally respected and admired for their unique contributions. Her works celebrate feminine power and beauty.

“Although Earl's style references the past, her goal is contemporary. She seeks to identify the way gender has been conceived and thereby undermine the social constructions of women as weaker and less significant than the male of the species”.

                                                                                Betty Ann Brown, Art and Cake July 2020

 Her work employs saturated colors, floral motifs and flashes of gold in her images, reminiscent of the Medieval illuminated manuscripts she was introduced to in Florence, Italy years ago. Taking her visual cue from those manuscripts, she uses imagery to narrate concept: at once questioning existing mythology and history while framing contemporary definitions of femininity.

“I imagine how medieval manuscript paintings would have looked if the western world had continued to worship male and female Gods instead of adopting the purely male dominated Abrahamic religions.” Palmer Earl

Through research of major social influences such as religion, mythology and the written word, Earl visually interprets specific stories or incidents that helped shape our social trajectory. With a better understanding of our path, she seeks to make sense of where women are today and where they may be in the future.
