Lily Platts

Lily Platts captures the forgotten items of the everyday. She is drawn to highlighting objects in transitional environments, such as on the side of the road, at a garage sale, an op shop, or on an online marketplace.

The series focuses on the beauty and humanity found within these neglected objects. The finely balanced yet intriguing compositions showcase the unique stories within these scenes, environments that we are familiar with but still seem slightly surreal. Lily created 5 ceramic pieces to complement her Special Release of paintings at Michael Reid Southern Highlands to continue her theme of  household items being tossed kerbside, with chairs in particular being a recurring muse.

Platts is a visual artist living and working on Ngunnawal land. Through her subject matter she explores themes and nuances of the everyday. Platts was a recipient of the 2020 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship after graduating with Honours from RMIT, Melbourne in 2019 and from ANU in 2017.
