The Artist's Eye: Liliane Tomasko

Date: 07 March 2024
Time: 12:00 - 17:00

The Artist’s Eye: Liliane Tomasko 1 December 2023 - 10 March 2024 Opening: Thur. 30 November 2023, 6-8pm   Acknowledging the crucial role artists play in influencing and shaping other artistic practices, The Artist’s Eye series asks those exhibiting in Gallery 1 to invite an artist of influence to present work in Gallery 2. In this instalment, Siobhán Hapaksa has invited artist Liliane Tomasko. In her practice, Liliane Tomasko explores the realms of dreams, memory, the subconscious and emotion through vibrant, layered compositions. Tomasko's abstract paintings often feature ethereal, fluid forms and richly textured surfaces using colour, tone, and shadows to create a sense of mystery, emotional depth and introspection. The works push toward the figurative but pull back, drawing the viewer into an inner world, invoking a feeling or moment without representing it. The work presented here at The Douglas Hyde began with a request to photograph the gallery’s workshop, an inner sanctum hidden from audiences, behind the walls of Gallery 2. Tomasko has taken images as a starting point for a series of new works, a reverberant polychromatic diptych painting on aluminium and 12 black acrylic drawings on linen, presented within and outside beyond Gallery 2. Liliane Tomasko lives and works between New York, NY, US, and London, UK. She earned her BFA at the Chelsea College of Art & Design, and her MFA at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. She has had solo exhibitions at the New York Studio School, New York, US; IVAM, Valencia, SP; Kerlin Gallery, Dublin, IE; Kewenig, Berlin, DE; Kunstmuseum Kloster unser lieben Frauen Magdeburg, DE; The Edward Hopper Museum and Study Center, NY, among many others. Tomasko’s work is collected by many public and private collections, including the Albertina Collection, AS; the Lowe Art Museum, US; Try-Me Collection, US; Sammlung Klein, DE; Hilti Art Foundation, IR; Collection du Conseil Départemental du Var, FR; Kunsthalle Karlsruhe, DE; Kunstmuseum Kloster unser lieben Frauen Magdeburg, DE; Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, IE; IVAM-Institut Valencia d’Art Modern, Valencia, SP; K20 K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf, DE; Kunstmuseum Bern, Bern, CH, among others.
