Liliana is an award-winning artist, sculpture, illustrator and writer
During her five years as an abstract artist Liliana has won multiple awards for her paintings, adding to the accolades her twelve books have collected. Liliana’s painting ‘Still Life’ was Highly Commended in the 2015 South Perth Emerging Artist Exhibition. her painting ‘When the rain came’ was the overall winner of the Freedom School Exhibition 2017
Liliana’s work is inspired by seen and unseen world’s colliding – referencing simultaneously the natural world and layered human relations. She is fascinated by the unseen manifested physical: an invisible wind moving a visible leaf. Through her use of abstract acrylics and wired sculptures, these messages are hummed with revelled abandonment.
Her works are created through an automatic drawing technique, using her non-dominant hand to purposefully bypass the critical mind. This allows an unconscious process of creating that allows certain complexities to form that may not have initially had the space, or language to. The wire work is seen by Liliana as drawing in the air.
Both current and past exhibitions will be listed on this page. Don’t hesitate to contact Liliana if you have any enquiries about exhibition work.
