Lora Talbot’s paintings are six feet or greater in any direction. These larger-than-life sized works feature pared down figurative images that are rendered in a bold palette of 2-4 colors. In titling her exhibition “Resist”, Talbot positions the painted figure as an icon of strength and resistance.
