Line Dot is thrilled to present our second solo exhibition of original paintings by Chicago native Kayla Mahaffey, following her sold-out debut last year. ‘Off to the Races’ builds on the thematic and stylistic principles of Mahaffey’s previous work, further developing the artist’s unique blend of flat, cartoon elements with brilliant photorealism.
'Off to the Races' narrates the ever-changing road of life. As we travel through life we experience the daily trials and tribulations that help shape us into the people we are today. During this journey we may end up hitting some bumps or may experience some rough terrain, but it's how we deal with those situations that make the difference. We are all on the journey to greatness, each individual racing to the finish line in hope of reaching goals and prosperity. With the race may come with it mistakes and regret, but not taking part in the race leads you nowhere.
*Please note that artwork from 'Off to the Races' will ship out (or be available for pickup) the week after the show closes on May 25th
