NEW YORK – MARC STRAUS is pleased to announce that Liliane Tomasko has joined the gallery. An exhibition of new paintings will open January 5th, 2017.

In a career spanning over two decades, Liliane Tomasko has fashioned a unique and recognizable abstract language. Her subject matter is rooted in the domestic sphere: unmade beds, fabrics and linens contain an inner world exploring much larger existentialism issues.

Tomasko once said, ‘Painting has the ability to show us something all at once and affect us emotionally in a very direct way. It can reveal something about our being and existence, without having to be descriptive. It makes a space for intuition and the use of our senses’.

Liliane Tomasko was born in Zurich, Switzerland. She studied in London at Camberwell College, Chelsea College of Art & Design, and the Royal Academy of Arts. She lives and works in Germany, Barcelona and New York.

Her work is found in public and private collections worldwide, including IVAN, Valencia; Hilti Art Foundation, Schaan; Kunstammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Dusseldorf; Kunstmuseum Bern, Bern; Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, Munich; Stadtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Munich; Try-me, Richmond, VA, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA. She has shown internationally in both solo and group exhibitions, including at Lowe Art Museum, Miami; Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix, Garrison Arts Center, New York; IVAM, Valencia and Casal Solleric, Spain, as well as in Vienna, France, China, and Germany.

Tomasko is currently in a two-person show with Sean Scully at the Centro Cultural Bancaja, Valencia, Spain, on view through January 15th, 2017.

She is represented by MARC STRAUS in NYC and Kerlin Gallery in Dublin.
