Lilith Garden [By Mai Ly Irvin]
Mai Ly (she/they) is an inter-country adoptee from Vietnam. As a Queer, Autistic person who also has ADHD, they use their art to heal from trauma. Mai Ly just hopes to create art pieces that make people feel joy.
As a part of building meaningful relationships with First Nations, PoC, queer, trans and disabled artists across the world, we've commissioned Mai Ly to create a work of visual art that we have re-produced as a limited run of prints, available for purchase as part of the upcoming Mothprocess: Fairytale & Fantasy.
Mai Ly is paid a full fee for their work, and the prints are sold at a price that allows both the artist and ruhmantic to sustain their practices.
PRESENTING ‘LILITH’S GARDEN’ BY MAI LY IRVINE
For this piece, Mai Ly used watercolours and acrylic paints. She was inspired by a 'hyper-focus session' where she stared at an ants nest and a small patch of grass for... a while. She hopes this collage/painting hybrid evokes a feeling of whimsy and encourages your inner-child out to play and un-mask.
This artwork was created on un-ceded, stolen Kaurna Land.
