Five Booths Not to Miss at Volta NY This Year


Critic Charles Riley of Hamptons Art Hub picked Liliane Tomasko’s paintings as one of the five not to be missed at Volta this year.

The sweeping gestures and fearless colors of Liliane Tomasko’s stunning paintings are the lure, but once I engaged with the work I found myself trying to unravel some of the skein of three-dimensional layers in the big, bold, recent Who you were is not what you will be. Does the band of cobalt blue that contains the swirling red and lemon yellow pass under or over some of the reds and whites? More lightly applied than at first appears, Tomasko’s acrylic and oil washes admit plenty of air, and she sweeps confidently across corners with a blast of spray paint that offer a revealing contrast, with their blurred edges, with the inter-woven tighter cuts of blue.
