Contemporary - Painting

Abi Giltinan, Henry Glover, Orla Murray, Melitta Nemeth & Robyn Packham - To Touch You

Mon-Sat: 10-6pm

"Intimacy for oneself, intimacy shared, the intimacy of a stare or a quiet moment. Liliya Art Gallery’s first exhibition of 2023 brings together five contemporary artists who use paint as a medium to capture scenes of intimacy. Each artist explores these unguarded and personal moments, boldly bringing them into the public sphere.

To Touch You, dissects the meaning of intimacy, and explores the intimate relationship between painting and touch. Dualities emerge as the artists confront how this impacts our experience of touch and intimacy. Vulnerability and power, fear and desire, self and other come together to challenge preconceived ideas and illusions of the meaning of intimacy.

The selected paintings explore a visual language of intimacy and seek to expose how touch and emotional intimacy impacts our day to day through simple moments. The intimacy expressed in the works encourages the viewer to feel with them and be as one. To share this in these moments and simply focus on feeling."
