Valencian Institute for Modern Art Presents Over Sixty Works of Art by Liliane Tomasko


VALENCIA.- The Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (IVAM) presents ‘Bright Matter’ by Liliane Tomasko, on view from April 27 through June 26, 2011. This exhibition gathers over sixty works of art, made between 1999 and 2011, in which the sketchy image of daily details such as paper bags, blankets, clothes, windows and half-lighted rooms acquires shades and textures and, without losing the figurative condition of its photographic origin, evokes certain lyric and geometrical abstraction. To Liliane Tomasko, painting has had a great importance as a unique expressive means of creation, wondering constantly about the limits of abstraction and, consequently, about the limits of figurative art.

On the occasion of the exhibition a catalogue has been published which contains the works displayed
