About The Artwork

This diptych by Liliana Restrepo is a captivating exploration of contrast and perception. The use of nails, rigid in their nature, against the ephemeral quality of the shapes they form, creates a visual and tactile dichotomy. These pieces transcend the traditional two-dimensional surface, engaging with the surrounding space as the viewer's perspective shifts. The play of light upon the nails allows the image to dynamically change, giving the illusion that it appears and disappears depending on the viewer's distance and angle. Restrepo's work here is a meditation on opposites: the tangible hardness of the nails against the perceived softness of the collective shapes they form, the certainty of light against the ambiguity of shadow. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Liliana Restrepo, a visionary Colombian contemporary artist born in 1961, makes her home and studio in the vibrant city of Bogotá. With a rich background as an industrial designer, Liliana fuses her expertise in materials and form with a profound artistic sensibility to create mixed media artworks that delve into the essence of everyday subjects. Her work is a testament to the beauty of complexity in simplicity, where each piece is a narrative of textures, shapes, and the interplay of light and shadows. Restrepo's artistry is a dialogue between her technical skill and her creative intuition, producing pieces that are as much about the process as they are about the final image. Her industrial design training is evident in her precise approach to creating forms that are both structural and suggestive, often using unconventional materials like nails and cork to build up her canvases. This meticulous attention to detail results in works that are not only visually striking but also textured to touch, inviting viewers to experience art in a multi-sensory way.
