About Lillianna


The language of myth allows a story to be a part of a wider universal context. Although these stories and archetypes may resonate very closely with me on a personal level, their creation derives from collective material and their power lies in the meaning and the broader truths that myths convey. Culled images from magazines, books, and newspapers are manipulated and reassembled in order to activate the archetypes that lie therein. I never start a piece with particulars in mind, serendipity and the personal unconscious guide the composition. The personal becomes collective and conscious once the stories start to emerge.

I agree with Kathryn O . It is soo easy to tear a piece a part opposed to opening your mind to see what the artist is showing us.

i think the images are interesting and are loaded with narrative.

Art 101 - Beauty (or appreciation) is in the eye of the beholder. Just because you don't like something, or understand it, doesn't negate it's value as art. This work is not exactly my cup of tea, but I can appreciate the effort and emotional connections to the images.

You can critique without being downright nasty. My experience here has been that rude comments say much more about the poster than the artist's work.

Crude, though I like the symbolism. Brush up on it a bit. Make it something really cool. Always a work in progress i guess...

I'm no artist, but I do enjoy what you have done here.

I really like your collages! I love the style.

Would someone be so kind as to tell me the meaning of "art." Either I am confused or most of my contemporaries have missed the mark.

Thank you for the work you do....I am deeply moved....the "talent" is in resonating with the archetypal connection

Interesting manipulation and concept of myth.

So, David, could you please explain why this is abstract and meaningless, since you seem to be the authority here.

whatever daniel obviously you are not an artist. abstract is art.
