"This piece is installed by suspending it in the middle of the gallery. It is meant to be seen in the round and operates as a peep hole. The texture in the center is a combination of resin, plastic, and glitter. At the time I was making this I was interested in the abject, creating something laborious and beautiful and then uninhibitedly making it gross."

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.
