Ghilia Lipman-Wulf is an artist and writer living in Sag Harbor. Considered a neo-Expressionist, Ghilia’s work is mostly semi-abstract, but she is widely known for botanicals as well. From the canvas to furniture, ceramics, clothing, and murals, Ghilia’s work has been widely commissioned and exhibited since the early 1980s. Recurrent themes in Ghilia’s work stem from a love of nature and the human form. She is currently working on a series of memory pieces which incorporate both painting and prose. Together, these vignettes are meant to capture pieces of the past–including autobiographical subjects, but also the shared stories and histories of the artist’s family.
Ghilia holds an MFA in writing from the New School for Social Research, and has worked in a variety of fields—including as a ghost-writer, archivist, art-preservationist, and florist. For Ghilia, color, movement in nature, and memory are important themes. Along with the Kramoris Gallery, she has exhibited with the Clayton-Liberatore Gallery and the Art Students League, as well as in group shows on the East End.
