Kizza Lilitu, 10.2018
For New Orleans based artist Kizza Lilitu, intuitive handcrafting is not only a symbol of divine feminine creation, but also one of personal power and proficiency. Self-taught from a young age, her methods have become second-nature. She has perfected the old-fashioned craft techniques of crochet, quilting, macrame and sewing and reapplies them in a contemporary art context. Her wall-hangings and installations of fabric and yarn create immersive, soft, womb-like environments for viewers to explore and find comfort within.
Through an intuitive meditative process of constructing with her hands, Kizza honors a lore which speaks directly to the shifting seasons of the soul and engages the feminine spirit. See more of her work at https://www.instagram.com/kizzalilitu/
