Lilla Szekely


Lilla E. Szekely is an artist and printmaker who 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, she majored in fine arts with a minor in art history at Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her primary interests are in printmaking, papermaking, and painting. Lilla was born in Hungary but her family is from Transylvania. She emigrated to the United States when she was 15 years old. She has been passionate about art making since an early age and has especially found solace in it as a teen emigre student. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and explores how nature is a testament to time and to our identities–with their vulnerability and fluidity. She believes the condition of ‘rootlessness’ is common in America, the country of immigrants, more than anywhere else. She seeks to re-tell collective memories as an act of preservation, and a desire to be understood.
