PRESS RELEASE:

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 giclĂ©e prints of the original collages in limited editions.

A Lovely Summertime Fabric

My new LULU DK fabric print just rolled out from the mill! I am loving it and would love it as endless flowing curtains in a bright white house...or perhaps I will treat it with acrylic backing and use it as wallpaper in my bedroom in my new Long Island home. Yummy. I am toying with names...Beaches? Forms? Shell? Summertime???? Feel free to chirp in with your opinion. Still brand new so we don't have swatches yet, but feel free to check in with my office 212-223-4234 if you would like further info.

Design Your Own Cake

I love a good source and this little one is precious. My friend Ruthie Sommers ( a lot of you probably know her as a fantastic interior designer) put me onto this yummy cake making company. For those of you who have children you learn quickly the need for fun themed cakes and birthday/ holiday goodies. This is what Modern Bite in Los Angeles does. Ruthie asked for daisies and they sent her this selection of drawings below to choose from and play with....I think totally cool and fun and definitely worth a mention for that next birthday party! They are delicious and they will deliver. I like the idea of sending your own creation to a friend as their birthday present! One car and one choo-choo-train for me please!
