Kia Neill: Terrain

If your heart is warmed by twinkling colored lights, moth wing silouhettes cast on a wall, and fantasy worlds made real, then you must experience this!

Kia Neill creates environments using textured and atmospheric media. In "Terrain" you will enter the dark, cave-like room to walk the winding paths between turrets and stalagmites made of papier mache, netting, lights, and little gems. Kia has created an atmosphere that transported me back to my child-like mind, where I wished to live in the fantastic worlds of The Dark Crystal, Fraggle Rock, and The Neverending Story. A dream!

"Terrain" is twinkling at the Women and Their Work Gallery in Austin at 17th & Lavaca, now through February 25, 2010. Thanks to our friend at The Austinist for the fantastic tip!
