An Exhibition at Young at Art Museum, April – August 2018
Mixed-media, Acrylic, LED lighting 9 ft L x 6 ft W x 2 ft “Ora,” inspired by The Spirit, is the second edition in a series of sculptures created using the idea of handmade acrylic petals to formulate a crystalized sculpture piece symbolizing love, light, and transcendence through the use of light and color.
In this installation Artist Haiiileen takes us into her dream world where viewers can imagine themselves falling into a pit of balloons, getting lost in the world of a “forever party” where fun and freedom is never far away.
Inspired by her work with American Apparel, Artist Haiiileen created this installation as a representation of her work within retail showcasing the prison of “fast fashion” and the ultimate downfall of this side of the fashion world. The upsidedown sign is a symbolization of how we not only perceive retail in our society but the modern demise of American culture and political views as a whole.
Exploring the multidimensional layers of our atmosphere from the core of the earth to the outer surface and into the vast expanses of the galaxy, artist Haiiilleen utilizes six 48×32 size multimedia, multi-layer, acrylic panels to create her 2 part 3 panel series. Each panel forms a mirrored image of the other creating a large scale immersive environment where guests can experience it as a photo booth and journey through an abstract neo-tropical oasis transporting them through the creative evolution of life and the universe surrounding it.
Ora, inspired by The Spirit of Bjork, is the second edition in a series of sculptures created by Haiiileen using the same idea of handmade acrylic petals to formulate a crystalized sculpture piece symbolizing love, light, and transcendence through the use of light and color.
