Star Ledger Chapter 237 Article WEB

The BEST news!! ­čÖé Our group show Chapter 237 at Index Art Cnter received a FEATURE in the front of the NJ Star-Ledger newspaper. I was honored to be one of 8 artists selected to create an installation at Index Art Space for the show. I created a large painting on several windows, then projected my film┬á Burning In Water, Drowning In Flame http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ER36-GJjBeU onto the painted windows. It was an honor to be included. Thanks to writer Dan Bischoff for covering the exhibition, which was the first in the non-profit’s newest location, following a fire in their previous location. The opening was a huge success, and we were able to help raise money to get the wonderful space and all connected with it back on their feet.




Exciting news: I found out yesterday I would have one of my paintings featured next Spring in the New Britain Museum of American Art’s Spring Auction. Extremely excited to have the opportunity to hang there again. Last year it truly was a dream come true to walk into their museum and see my piece hanging on their walls. They have a wonderful collection of works, and everyone I have met and talked to in connection with the institution has been absolutely lovely. Very honored and grateful to have this opportunity.




I found this nice little shout out from one of my collectors, Richard Vorisek. He purchased my portrait “James” at Sotheby’s in NYC on October 8th during the Take Home A Nude auction. I am so thankful for all of the recent support and encouragement from my friends, new and old. It means the world to me whenever I can bring some joy into someone’s life through my art.

Thank You Richard Vorisek




I had the most amazing, life changing Summer. I spent four months living in Leipzig, Germany. I went there to participate in the PILOTENKUECHE artist residency which was located in the Spinnerei ( a HUGE complex in an old converted industrial building that now houses galleries and studios.).

My residency was full of wonderful people and incredible artists from all over the world. Below are photos from our final residency exhibition, which we called Scho╠łneSchnitzelNoise Don’t ask what that means, it made sense to us in our own nonsensical way! ­čÖé

Artists in my residency included the following people: Jan Potter (Germany), Anna Kiljunen (Finland), Tina Metschke (Germany), Siegfried F├╝reder (Austria) and Fellipe Vergani (Brazil)

Pink Shoe Day

Hi friends, I was so fortunate to be able to participate in the Pink Shoe Day Exhibition, curated by Maeshalle West-Davies.

8 female artists (including myself) whose lives have been affected by cancer come together to say it’s not only ok to talk about it, it’s important. 70,000 women in Germany are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. It is the only cancer that’s on the rise. It is in our power to change that.

Participating artists included:

candace goodrich (USA), lily koto olive (USA), yule franke (DE), charlotte eifler (DE), daniela gr├Âmke (DE), madeleine heublein (DE), christina nielsen-marsh (UK), maeshelle west-davies (USA/UK)

Very excited to announce that I have been accepted into the NES Artist Residency in Skagastrond, Iceland. I will journey there next March 2014 to live and work in Northern Iceland for two months. I plan to film and paint the landscape, and document as much as possible. Very much looking forward to this opportunity.

I have been to Iceland once previously, and fell in love with it. I have been painting about the country for years, and cannot wait to go back.

 




subcutaneous final

Hi friends! I am extremely excited to announce I will participate in an upcoming two-person exhibition entitled Subcutaneous here in Leipzig, Germany at The Museum with Finnish painter Anna Kiljunen. The opening is next Thursday, August 15th, from 8-11pm.

Cheers! Lily
