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.
 
Upcoming two-person exhibitions with Sean Scully include Kunstwerk, Sammlung Klein, Stuttgart and SCULLY + TOMASKO, Centre D'art Contemporain Acentmetresdumonde, Perpiñan (1 July – 1 October 2017).

Liliane Tomasko, Dusk at Dawn

Kunsthalle Rostock, Rostock, Germany

1 March – 3 May 2015

Solo exhibition

Liliane Tomasko focuses her attention onto things, which lie in our immediate surroundings. She paints objects and spaces from the domestic environment; they are subtle interiors viewed from unusual angles. Dusk at Dawn is an exhibition about departure - it speaks of melancholia, of warmth and not least, of the love for painting.

Sleepless – The Bed in History and Contemporary Art

30 January – 7 June 2015

21er Haus, Vienna

More than forty years ago, John Lennon and Yoko Ono got into bed to protest against the war. The world’s most popular artist couple of that time made their honeymoon public by stating: “Make love, not war!”. Simultaneously, the bed turned into a political instrument of visual art.

In a time when so much critical theory surrounds the continuing relevance of painting to contemporary art practice it’s truly refreshing to encounter an artist who unabashedly embraces the medium. -Sarah Allen
