Reception: Thursday, October 3, 6:00-8:00pm
The Brookline Arts Center is pleased to present REPOP by Liliana Marquez.
“I use sample materials from mass construction.
I reclaim them from their original context.
I transform them into RE POP ART.
RE POP ART is about attitude.
RE POP ART is an idea that forces us
To RE think ART.
I AM what I see. See what I AM.”
Liliana Marquez, aka “lilimarq,” has been a resident of Boston since 1998. Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, her family encouraged her to express herself through art in a fun, creative and multicultural environment full of music, dance, literature, film, photography, sculpture and painting. She has a BA in Art and Graphic Design from the prestigious Caracas Institute of Design in Venezuela. Explaining her philosophy of art, Liliana says, “we live in a mass production era where we have a wonderful world full of extra material, so I decided to incorporate as much re-claimed and surplus materials as possible in all my designs…I called it RE POP ART. I achieve great satisfaction in knowing that I am able to transform surplus and discarded materials into art and receive even more pleasure when I see the smiles from those who enjoy my work.”
Mainly focused on working in 3D , Liliana designs lamps, furniture and produces art to create an inspiring message of life, hope and positive energy. She also leads creative workshops for young children in local schools to help them explore language, structure, shape, color and their own unique qualities through a “learning by doing” process. These workshops highly encourage children to use recycled materials while creatively repurposing them to create small sculptures. She has a studio where she designs, creates and sells her work in Stoughton, MA.
