‘Lilith and her Sisters’ about the artwork:
Title: “Lilith and her Sisters.” Artist: Andrea Arroyo.
Media: Mixed media paintings on recycled materials, gently integrated with a Siberian Elm tree. Approximate artwork dimensions: 10×10 feet.
The piece was commissioned by NoMAA and the New York Restoration Project.
Project Concept: The artwork evokes feminine archetypes universally associated with concepts of nature, abundance, creativity, and female power. This project draws attention to the magnificence of nature within an urban environment and honors the contributions, struggles and resilience of the diverse community of women of upper Manhattan.
I am very honored to have the opportunity to share my work with the people in the neighborhood, where it is integrated within the beautiful natural environment.
Departing from my previous works, I created this piece specifically as a temporary outdoor installation, using recycled materials, and gently intervened a beautiful Siberian Elm tree on Sherman Creek park, where the variations of wind and light through the day provide an additional -and unexpected- visual element to the work.
