ARTIST BIO
Lillywhite’s practice is informed by life and nature, through the use of light and shadows, her process
involves the break down and simplification of forms, by a creating aesthetically considered structures and shapes. Starting from a point of likeness, her work at times evolves into an abstract nature. Lillywhite draws on her experience as a graphic designer as a starting point for many of works, using digital flat plains that are then assembled into a 3D structure.


Her works include a sculpture of Juanita Nielsen which was created in collaboration with Sculptor John Gardner and is housed in the Juanita Nielsen Community Centre at Woolloomooloo. This piece was purchased for public display by the City of Sydney.


ARTIST STATEMENT
“I like to portray a sense of emotion within my work, I find horses and figures are the best way for me
to show this and often use these as my subject. I am strongly drawn to the contrasts of light and shade
and like to experiment with this in my work with the use of contrasting planes, abstractions and negative
spaces.”
