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.

Daniel Fiorda & Ro Barragan- October 24 to November 13, 2019
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.
