LilianeÂ Luneau – Recent Work
Friday, April 22 – Sunday, May 15
Opening Reception: Friday, April 22
6 – 9pm
With a career that spans over twenty years, Abstract Painter Liliane Luneau has always been able to fuse her interest in visual language with the idea of her paintings having a poetic, minimal beauty. In New Work, Luneau concentrates on her ongoing interest in intergrating a numberÂ of disparate elements that involve drawing, the geometric, and the painterly.
The drawing is set against or within translucent, sometimes iridescent, fields of color. The energy and the rhythm of the drawings and the juxtaposition of color with unexpected opposites create tension and resonance in the work. This visual language serves as a metaphor for spiritual and physical balance in our own experience and being.
Liliane Luneau states in her essay for Recent Work:
“My intent is to create balanced compositions with these disparate elements that conjure notions of constraint and freedom, of poetic order and chaos, of the structured and the intuitive. This balance is achieved through a process of searching and editing, revision and adjustment, layering and scraping until the composition is resolved to a point of meaning. The process is about the residue of things, about the marks and the traces that are left behind, about resonance and echoes. ”
Luneau’s new work illuminates the very idea of space, really the poetics of space, andÂ is as much about the erasure of the previous image as it is about the final image. It is about unseen layers, what lies in between and beneath.
