Lilliana Pereira Artist Statement: The language of myth allows a story to be a part of a wider universal context. Though these stories and archetypes may resonate very closely with me on a personal level, their creation derives from collective material and their power lies in the meaning and the broader truth that myths convey. Culled images from magazines, books, newspapers (printed accessible ephemera) are manipulated and reassembled in an order to activate the archetypes that lie therein. I never start a piece with particulars in mind, serendipity and the personal unconscious guide the composition and the personal becomes collective/conscious once the stories start to emerge.
