Kerlin Gallery is delighted to present The Red Thread, an exhibition of new paintings by Liliane Tomasko.

Liliane Tomasko’s abstract paintings employ a distinctive, bold lyricism, with an equally unabashed sense of colour.  The artist often begins with a study of the personal effects of everyday domesticity such as bedding or clothing to create work that suggests a gateway into the realms of sleep and dreaming; delving into the gulf between what we understand as the ‘conscious’ and ‘subconscious.’  This new series of paintings display an increasing vitality and assertiveness, articulating an abstraction that is rooted in the physical realm but attempting a departure from it.  Intense colour, subtle tone, shadows and painterly gesture are woven together in such a way that space comes in and out of focus, suspending one’s perception of them and emulating the clarity or lack thereof of dreams and memories.

Recent solo and two-person exhibitions include Museo MATE, Lima 2018/19, a dream of, Blain|Southern (2018); 12 nights x dreams, Rockland Center for the Arts, New York State; Kunstwerk (two-person exhibition with Sean Scully), Sammlung Klein, Germany; Feeling Folding, PIFO Gallery, Beijing; Sean Scully + Liliane Tomasko, Fundación Bancaja, Valencia; Mother-Matrix-Matter, Lowe Art Museum, Miami; In Visible World, Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix; dusk at dawn, Kunsthalle Rostock, Rostock (all 2015); IVAM, Valencia, travelling to Casal Solleric, Palma, Mallorca and Herforder Kunstverein, Herford (2011); New York Studio School, New York and Zweigstelle, Berlin (both 2010).
