Please join me in celebrating the completion of The Lilies How They Grow, a body of work which I began nearly three and half years ago, and which will be on display February 14th-June 14th at the Honolulu Museum of Art at First Hawaiian Center, Honolulu, HI.

The Lilies How They Grow

Emily McIlroy’s recent series of large-scale, oil and pastel paintings on paper explores the natural world as metaphor for human experiences of love, loss, grief, and wonder. Organic shapes, richly layered colors, and delicate textures reminiscent of underwater caverns, sea creatures, and plant forms, emerge from a repetitive process of rendering and erasure. -Honolulu Museum of Art
