La Baldi Artist Recidency, Montegiovi
I would urge my art peeps to take a look at the application for the La Baldi/Cultivate Residency. It was a fantastic experience for me.
Liliane Blom is an installation artist as well as a classically trained painter and award winning photographer whose distinct style mixes her love of both media into a new one. She calls her fusion of painting and photography digital painting. Her pieces printed on canvas or watercolor paper are later enhanced with oils/pastels and often with gold or silver leaf. Based in Rockville Maryland of French/Norwegian extraction she is a frequent exhibitor in the Washington region.
Liliane Blom’s installation art is interactive and immersive and often environmental in scope. They are multi-sensory experiences, that engage the viewer with sound/touch and light. Playful, they unapologetically appeal to our sense of wonder.
Personal and poetic, rhythmic and layered, her work merges the world of sound and vision – the internal with the external. It focuses on borderlines. Those mostly invisible boundaries that separate me from you, us from them, reality from fantasy, childhood from adulthood, life from death and humans from the rest of the natural world.
