The raffe is over! Liliana Folta, an internationally known
artist now living in Fort Point, created "Cassiopeia Behind the Scene"
as the first and only prize in Fort Point Theatre Channel's spring art
raffle. The acrylic on canvas painting measures 24" by 30". Fort Point
Framers donated the framing.
Born in Argentina, Liliana Folta is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily with acrylics, ceramic sculptures, and installations. Liliana's inspiration for "Cassiopeia Behind the Scene" comes from the assemblages of Joseph Cornell, the subject of FPTC's production of "Hotel Cassiopeia" by Charles Mee.
"The potential ability of the imagination has an important impact in our lives. Minds have visual images that we collect from the moment we are born to the moment we cease to exist. These inner images that represent my works are examinations of my existence. However, in this bank of memories I cherish every possible emotion: happiness, growing pains, family loss, first love, motherhood, sexuality, multicultural experiences, frustration, society's rules, and, most importantly, the celebration of life."
