Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Silhouettes of a Mémoire” an exhibition of works by JM Robert. A striking collection of fine art mixed media with his latest works that allure beauty and exuberance.
Scarcely evoked, the facial features are already vanishing. It seems that the faces were sketched, but did not have time to be completely formed. It is also a trace of an anonymous passage, a presence that is fragile, precarious, and always feminine. His abstract backgrounds of bright and flashy colors contrast with the black graphic by which he captures characteristic expressions of female faces. On his canvases, colors burst into a myriad of fragments that no longer manage to find their meaning to take shape. The use of vivid colors often help to classify his work in the category of pop art but he crosses the boundaries of style to create pieces which exude a timeless emotion, bridging classical and contemporary, creating a completely unique style of his own.

Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Recollections” an exhibition of works by Gieler. An extraordinary body of works of fine art collage with mixed media with his latest works that beautiful color patterns portraying the pop icons of our times.
Gieler is able to create a completely unusual and powerful body of work by using rebellious and nostalgic plays on icons of the past and present such as Brigitte Bardot, Kate Moss, Elvis Presley, and Marilyn Monroe. Working on mostly larger canvases, the presence of these pop pieces make a dramatic statement; but once looking closer at the details, the viewer is able to discover exciting, rich textures by the many layers of selected hand pulled posters. Gieler's evolving fascination with the voice of Amsterdam is now expanding to different cities such as London and New York. He aims to participate environments of the world into his pieces by using considerable efforts to bring the two together. His journey through the cities on bicycle leaves him soaking up the backdrop of the streets, which then, later on, translates into the passion he puts into creating his compositions. The result is a refreshing take on pop art that excites the viewer with strong suggestions of color, texture, and design.
Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Chromatic” an exhibition of works by Logan Ledford. A wonderful collection of abstract paintings display a unique design with wonderful attention to detail, with acrylic paint, liquid gold leaf, acrylic sheets, and vinyl.
The splashes of a raindrop or flickering lights through the busy city remind us of these colorful canvases. The works combine strong contrasts of cleverly placed paint, creating a highly decorative and engaging pattern, having the viewer jump from spot to spot taking in the boldly luminescent geometry and the lovely blocks of variant color. Logan's passion for schematically designing each canvas depicting geometric shapes over and over again, mimicking simple, recognizable forms is a joy to discover. Each canvas is repetitive, but each individual and unique with its own theme. Standing in front of her paintings is like journeying into a very strong world of color, where the senses are completely motivated, exciting us to discover Logan's unique patterns seamlessly with the imagination.
Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Incidental Expressions” an exhibition of works by Roh Jae-soon, of a stunning collection of oil paintings depicting a beautiful woman's lips done in a photo realistic style.
Roh Jae-soon began to draw from the early days. Sometimes he drew the whole body but mostly focused on eyes and faces. This collection of the lip work has its significance in telling the story of the world. The moment the artist commits the photographed lips to the canvas, the atmosphere and message of the art work are determined. For instance, tight lips express the absence of communication and open lips the carpe-diem kind of gaiety. Depending on the expression of the lips, some lips suggest hope for the future, and only the lips are highlighted. Roh expresses the lips in various ways. Looking at the works of Roh Jae-soon, we can feel many stories being told through just one simple element: the mouth. Roh refuses to let daily life slide by, incorporating elements of sympathy into his paintings. If the sentence inscribed on the wall becomes a sentence, the lips on the canvas will tell stories as if they had become a reporter. We can hear the cry of the times through Roh Jae-soon’s canvases, embracing the stories of the world. The lips drawn on the canvas are about to tell a story. Roh's drawings are not simply the lips, but the ‘expression’ of the lips.

Daniel Fiorda & Ro Barragan
Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Typos” an exhibition of works by Daniel Fiorda & Ro Barragan. An intriguing selection of works by two Argentinian artists.
Fiorda links past and present, old and new, with a subtle irony and criticism. The works become a critical mirror for our post-Industrial society and its polluting daily activity. Fiorda’s works have found a key place in the great currents of Contemporary sculpture. Daniel Fiorda’s sculpture breaks up the logic of representation characterized by traditional Western-Art sculptures. His works are made with discarded metals assembled in a complex and busy structure that recalls a Neo-Baroque approach to art. The sculpture's material becomes a morphological generator of its figurative shape. As an archeologist, Fiorda captures the “presence” and the elusive meaning of each work of art, most lately with discarded remnants of the industrial world.
Ro Barragán has a Master in Aesthetics and Art Theory by the National University of La Plata in Argentina. She developed her artistic since 1994 participating in collective and individual exhibitions in Painting, Engraving, Objects, Digital Art, Installations and Interactive Art, in Buenos Aires and other cities of Argentina, Bogotá, Rome, and Miami. She also develops art activities in the context of the street, through stickers and posters. She is a Teacher of the Engraving and Complementary Printed Art Workshop at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the National University of La Plata and a teacher of the typography workshop at the Museo de Calcos y Escultura comparada Ernesto de la Cárcova, city of Buenos Aires.
