The Window - Far from home: Lily Mae Martin

Monday, November 19, 2012 - Sunday, January 06, 2013, -

Lydiard St Window

Lily Mae Martin's portraits are like freeze frames, momentary glimpses of an individual. This group of paintings form part of a larger body of work that she created while in Berlin over the past eighteen months. During this time she found that people living in Berlin often"…do not originally come from Berlin, but have rather moved to the city and find they can be whoever they want to be, without a history. In Berlin, people can curate their own identities"

Her dynamic portraits explore this idea of a constructed identity and the many personas that people create.
