Liliane Lijn

Artist Liliane Lijn, who since the early 1960's has crossed boundaries between disciplines and embraced an eclectic range of media. Conical forms, inspired by traffic cones, have been part of Lijn's work. Much of her public sculpture revisits this symbolic shape as the basis for more metaphysical meaning being part of a parent generation of artists involved with the Surrealist and the Beat Generation movement. Her film work documents sculptural idea, compelling us with mesmeric stop frame trickery, economy of material and a manipulation of scale.
