Artist's Statement:

My sculpture and my dance have been two passions in my life since I was a kid. The memories of that dance are stamped in my pieces. The themes of movement, space and communication are constantly present in my artwork. I like to explore the suggestions of bodies in communication, in movement and in rhythm with space.

Before moving to the US, Argentine-born Lila studied art with an emphasis on clay sculpture. With her move here, she branched out to experiment with mixed-media sculpture. Lila’s technique has developed over time. Her pieces consist of multiple layers composed of different materials including metal, paper, proprietary finishes, and a protective sealant.

For Lila, her completion of a piece is in the interpretation of the viewer once it becomes independent of her creative process. Her sculptures move with such a lyrical fluidity that’s it’s impossible not to see in them her years as a free movement dancer.

Lila participates in several juried shows across the country

Lila is represented exclusively in the Upper Valley by The Woodstock Gallery.
