LULU: Collages by Lulu de Kwiatkowski
April 6 - May 8, 2011
Christiane Celle and Clic Gallery are proud to present LULU: COLLAGES BY LULU DE KWIATKOWSKI. The show will open April 7, 2011 and run through May 8, 20111.
In 2008, Ammo Books published LULU, a collection of Lulu de Kwiatkowski’s vividly colorful collages. Inspired by a lifetime of travel and her whimsical upbringing, the exuberant collages received praise from Vogue, W, Metropolitan Home, and others. Now these images make up the first gallery show for artist and designer LULU DE KWIATKOWSKI.
Best known as the creator of LULU DK Fabrics, Lulu de Kwiatkowski grew up in New York and the Bahamas. She received a fine arts degree from Parsons, and spent five years in Paris studying trompe l’oeil painting. Years ago, she began using her painter’s eye and her penchant for hunting out unusual color combinations to create a bold multimedia melange of painting, drawing, and photography. Her striking compositions play with scale and color, recalling Frida Kahlo and Peter Beard in their detail and imagination. Exotic fish swim past dining room furniture and Victorian erotica figures mingle with tree-sized bright red lollipops in these surreal, energetic landscapes. Proudly autobiographical, the sumptuous collages trace De Kwiatkowski’s development as an artist and celebrate farflung locales including Peru, Tanzania, Myanmar, Morocco, India, Bolivia, and New Zealand. The Clic Gallery show will present giclée prints of the original collages in limited editions.
