Valentina Liernur

Valentina Liernur’s works are often structured by series that explore the specificity and potential of the picture plane to bring together opposite elements such as high and low culture, feminine and masculine, local and global, amateur and professional. The works draws its title from a jeans commercial from the 80s, in which the sexual dreams of a model were related to the act of fitting jeans tightly onto the body. This ambiguous gesture of pleasure and pain is present on the scratched, ripped, cut and bleach-dripped surface of the works. The quality, energy and aggressiveness of the interventions relates to a previous series of heavy coated oil paintings that were nail scratched on their surface, while the dripping evokes historically male dominant action painting. These gestures come from an almost unconscious state, as if they had taken place between moments of complete withdrawal from reality.
