Over the next three years the series “Whispers in Blue” unfolded. These images of plants and flowers, taken around the world, express an exotic mystery. Roses are one of Farrell’s favorite subjects because of their connection to love and gratitude. She is also drawn to their spirals of energy, a quality present under each layer of pedals. Many were shot at night with little light and minimal staging, only revealing what nature would allow. These intoxicating works have been said to evoke healing energy. Aside from still images, Farrell incorporated her technique into videos that are displayed at hospitals and doctors offices to promote health and healing.
“Stepping through the Veil,” works by Lilli Farrell, will be displayed December 1 through January 31, 2008, at Sharada Gallery, 45 E. Market Street in Rhinebeck. An opening reception will be held Saturday, December 1 from 5-8pm. (845) 876-4828; www.sharadagallery.com.
