Liliane Tomasko

Born in Zurich, 1967 and lives in New York

Liliane Tomasko studied at Camberwell School of Art and Chelsea College of Art, London and received her MFA from the Royal Academy of Art, London. Upcoming solo exhibitions include Mother-Matrix-Matter at the Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami (December 2015).

Liliane Tomasko creates abstract painting, sculpture and photography that examines sites of domesticity. Often, her works explore the material qualities of household objects and soft furnishings—past bodies of work have explored hanging dresses and coats, ‘stacks’ of material, paper bags, curtains drawn before darkened windows. Tomasko’s painting has become increasingly abstract as her career has progressed, gradually amplifying its subject matter to the point where perception is stalled. Her most recent work is both an acceleration of this idea and an important new departure from it, showing a newfound vigour, muscularity and assertiveness.

Current solo exhibitions include ‘Sense’ at Kerlin Gallery, Dublin (28 November 2015 – 16 January 2016); ‘Mother-Matrix-Matter’, The Lowe Museum, Miami, FL, USA (30 October 2015 – 31 January 2016); ‘In Visible World’, Phoenix Art Museum, AZ, USA (21 November 2015 – 14 February 2016).

Tomasko has exhibited widely in Europe and the USA since 2002. Solo exhibitions include Kunsthalle Rostock (2015); Garrison Arts Center, New York (2013); IVAM, Valencia, travelling to Casal Solleric, Palma, Mallorca and Herforder Kunstverein, Herford (2011); New York Studio School, New York; Zweigstelle, Berlin (both 2010) and Hôtel des Arts, Toulon (2008). Two-person and group exhibitions include 21er Haus, Vienna (2015); Zweigstelle, Berlin (2013 and 2011); Das Haus am Lützlowplatz, Berlin (2011) and New York Studio School, New York (2010).
