Miss Lilly Bee
Spring Art Show: First Public Viewing of "Mandorla"
New York, NY: Lilly Burgos, Brooklyn artist, also known as Miss Lilly Bee has announced the first public viewing of her new body of art work, "Mandorla" at the BWAC Outer Limits Spring Art Show on the Red Hook Pier from April 26 - June 1st, 2014. The Opening Reception with Artist Meet & Greet is on Saturday, April 26th at 1:00 - 5:30 PM.
"Mandorla" is a Mixed Media and Photography exhibit that explores the different facets of power cycles, strength and control in the lives of women today. The artist is looking to create a greater consciousness of the gender roles and the subconscious dialogues and scripts that have been fed to women by society, culture, and religion. Through out time, women have found ways to share their struggles with the gender roles imposed on them, including vision of self, present and future in order to connect and communicate with their community in a way that words can not. Miss Lilly Bee's artistic expression in "Mandorla" is an example of this type of self knowledge and consciousness. She believes that through self knowledge we will become empowered and effective women that can meet the challeges of living in the modern world.
"Mandorla" is a commentary on gender roles, power, morality and the accountability that religion and society holds women to.
