Lila Turjanski-Villard was born in Argentina, where she studied clay sculpture in private studios for more than ten years. Once living in the US, she took classes in contemporary sculpture at the Westchester Art Workshop that motivated her exploration of new materials. In 2005, she started to experiment with these mixed media sculptures to continue her creative journey. Currently, her work is exhibited at art galleries and art shows. She received various awards at art shows.
Lila's educational background includes a degree in Psychology from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina and a Masters Degree in Management of Nonprofit Organizations from New York University. Lila lives in Yorktown Heights, NY with her husband and their two children.
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 human figure, with its suggestions of communication, movement, and rhythm with space.
I enjoy working with a technique that I have developed over time and in which I use different materials including paper. It is a good vehicle I have found to express my themes.
The completion of the piece is in the interpretation of the viewer once it becomes independent of my creative process.
