"My car was stolen outside of my studio in Newark, NJ. Along with it were art materials and in-progress work. When I got my car back, most of my possessions inside were gone. Instead of focusing on the work that was lost, I created this piece with all the materials that remained. There was a single shoe left in the trunk that inspired the title of the piece."

Daniela Puliti studied painting at Montclair State University (BFA, 2011) and The Savannah College of Art and Design (MFA, 2015). Puliti manipulates craft-based materials with an intuitive painter's sensibility; creating installations, paintings, and mixed media works about gender, sexuality, vulnerability, and mental illness. She identifies as a gender-questioning femme, forever evaluating the shifting ideals around intersectional feminism within structural misogyny. Puliti has participated in short term residencies at The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (NYC), Vermont Studio Center, The Wassaic Project, ChaNorth and a forthcoming residency at Millay Arts (August 2022). Puliti is an alumna of the A.I.R. Gallery Fellowship Program in Brooklyn, NY (2017-2018), which granted her first solo exhibition in NYC in February 2018. Her most recent solo exhibition, "There were no casseroles...", focused on the grieving process after the death of her partner. In 2021, Daniela Puliti was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship from the New Jersey Council on the Arts.
