      Lilla Szekely

      Artist Lilla Szekely emigrated to the United States from her birthplace, Hungary, when she was 15-years-old. As a teen emigre student, Lilla found solace in art. Today, the artist turns to printmaking to explore themes of vulnerability, fluidity and rootlessness.

      Early Career

      Lilla splits her time between the greater Boston area and Providence, Rhode Island, where she recently finished her MFA in Printmaking at Rhode Island School of Design. For her undergraduate studies, Lilla majored in Fine Arts with a minor in Art History at Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her specialist area is in print and papermaking, a skill that quickly granted her exhibitions nationally and internationally.

      Lilla Szekely’s Style

      Lilla sees her prints as an act of preservation. She uses her abstract works as a means to explore collective memory and a desire to be understood. With an earthy colour palette and organic textures, Lilla conveys the relationship between nature and belonging, the local and the global, and the insider and outsider gaze. Her abstract expressionist style, delicate and mirage-like, honours how nature and memory are an ever-changing matrix of loss, growth and renewal.
