Liliana Porter

b. 1941 in Buenos Aires, Argentina; lives in Rhinebeck, New York

No stranger to Tamarind or printmaking, artist Liliana Porter was welcomed back to Tamarind’s workshop this past spring. Porter created five new editions, incorporating her signature bunnies and delightful sense of humor. Porter’s wry wit is heightened by the simplicity of her compositions and drawings. Two of the five editions incorporate three-dimensional elements. To See Gold reveals a bunny staring at an orb of gold just within–or is it just out of?–reach. To Dress Up features a bunny wearing a tiny hand-sewn dress. Porter, a native Argentinian, is represented by several galleries internationally, and her work can be found in more than a hundred museum and private collections. Her work is featured in a solo show at MALBA in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the Fall of 2013.
