Liliane Tomasko has exhibited widely in museums and galleries across the US and Europe. This will be Tomasko’s first exhibition in Rockland County since moving her main working studio to Tappan NY in 2015, and will offer a rare glimpse into the philosophical reverie that underpins all of the artist’s work.
Tomasko finds inspiration in the mystery of the most mundane artifacts of domestic life: piled up bags, folded bedlinens, a dress on a hanger. This exhibition of new work sees Tomasko honing that concept still further, using a collection of folded and stacked hotel bedlinens. Each unfolded and drawn on with bravura strokes of spray paint, then hung with their irregular and individual grids of folds still visibly present. Twelve bedsheets represent twelve nights. A night is defined as 12 hours. Twelve is a symbol of cosmic order, the number of space and time: there are 12 months in a year; so from 12 the possibilities are myriad. These dreams are made manifest in a series of multicolored drawings in which Tomasko extrapolates the plethora of possibilities that lie within the same lines of the timeworn sheets.
“12 nights x dreams” exhibit will be on view February 11 through March 11, 2018. An opening artist reception will be held Sunday, February 11th, 1 – 4 pm. Free to the public.
