Anya Tish Gallery will present "Parables & Everyday Stories," the third solo exhibition of Houston-based multidisciplinary artist, Lillian Warren.

In her most recent body of work, the artist utilizes the iconography, brilliant colors, and elaborate designs of medieval manuscripts as a stage for the exploration of everyday contemporary life, often incorporating familiar faces from the Houston art scene. Warren’s working process combines photography, video, and her own painting technique.

Acting as a director of sorts, Warren takes photographs of several individuals amid improvisational interactions. She then begins to draft her compositions, piecing together different individuals and often repeating the same subject in different positions within the ornate maze-like scenery. A slippery fluid acrylic is then applied to Mylar which, having a penchant to pool, creates visible forms but tends to abstract the figures.

The exhibition will remain on display through October 31.
