Lilian Finkel
Visual Artist-in-Residence

​2017-2018 Season 
This year we are featuring a visual artist at our concerts.  Lilian Finkel's work will be on display at our various concerts and of course, available through her website. 
I am intrigued by existence – what we emerge from, what we move toward, and ultimately the relationship between presence and absence. The difference between a living body and a lifeless object is immense, yet I wonder at the enigma of the in-between. We are in constant motion both physically and emotionally; as we occupy the space around us we interact with our surroundings, leaving echoes as we melt into and emerge from them. This relationship between being and non-being leads me to examine the impermanence of life; with paint and knives I build and scrape, create and destroy, as I explore the emergence and disappearance of form. I want to capture a flickering moment in time before it dissolves.

Katia Setzer was born in 1988 in South Orange, NJ. She received her BA from Colby College (Waterville, ME) in 2010 with a degree in both Art and English. In 2013, she earned her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in Philadelphia, PA. She exhibits regularly in both group and solo shows, most recently at the Bridgette Mayer Gallery (Philadelphia, PA), Studio Montclair (Newark, NJ), and the Ukrainian Institute of America (New York, NY). Additionally, she was selected by the [email protected] Chamber Music Festival and Institute as their '2015 Visual Artist'. 

She has provided the program cover for the Grammy award-winning Emerson String Quartet’s ongoing concert series at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. Her painting Transfiguration (After Schoenberg's Transfigured Night) was selected by Sony Classical for the CD cover of the Emerson Quartet's album, “Journeys” (released 5/20/13).

She currently lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
