NEW YORK - May 29, 2024 - PRLog -- New York — Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to welcome inspirational artist Ash Almonte. In the heart of Union Square, where the pulse of New York is strong, Lilac Gallery unveils Almonte's latest works from the Chandelier and Butterfly series, telling a story of light, flight, and freedom. This momentous occasion promises an immersive journey through the realms of human connection and existential contemplation.

Born in Abilene, TX, Almonte's artistic journey has taken her from the lights of Hollywood to the landscapes of Germany. With award-winning pieces and a BFA in Fine Arts from McMurry University, Almonte's upcoming showcase at Lilac Gallery promises to be an uplifting and emotional journey, reflecting years of artistic evolution and introspection.

Rooted in abstract expressionism, Almonte's paintings challenge the depths of human relationships and the power to uplift and inspire. Each canvas becomes a stage as her brushstrokes move without restraint. The result is a refreshing, bold statement unveiling the complexities of human connection. Almonte employs a direct, impasto technique, layering distinctive shapes to construct Butterflies and Chandeliers that pulsate with life.

The Chandelier Series embodies the idea that light fuels human connections. Almonte explains, "We all have a light inside us, and that light is how we connect—whether with a mentor, friend, stranger, or nurse. A chandelier represents this complexity and beauty, motivating me to reflect this light in my collection."

Almonte continually develops her aesthetic, breaking barriers in applying paint by manipulating her dried acrylic palette. She cuts and reapplies leftover paint onto new works, creating unique designs with a three-dimensional feel. Inspired by themes of rapture and positivity, Almonte generates palpable connections through her art. The Butterfly series, a tribute to her late father, symbolizes spiritual rebirth, transformation, hope, and life. Almonte says, "The butterfly series draws inspiration from Rivera's quote 'Butterflies can't see their wings. They can't see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can.'" This realization that butterflies symbolize beauty and rebirth brought Almonte deep comfort. Her passion for sharing messages of hope and renewal through her colorful canvases shines with resilience, leaving her audience glimmering with joie de vivre.

Passionate about using art for philanthropic endeavors and giving back to those in need, Almonte continues to explore new media in her practice.
