Liron Art

Liron's oil paintings have been featured in shows in New York City and throughout the US, have won multiple awards, and have been written about extensively. Her paintings are collected by institutional collectors coast-to-coast and by individuals on three continents. Liron's art was the subject of a 40 minute television interview. Her art appears in Warner Bros. Something Borrowed starring Kate Hudson. Liron is an elected Fellow of The American Artists Professional League. Her biography is listed in Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in American Art, and Who's Who of American Women.

"Every painting is a self portrait. I do not paint flowers. I use form, color, and texture to convey emotions. I use flowers as visual metaphors conveying many themes. The fragility of flowers, coupled with their ephemeral beauty, intriguing delicacy, and striking color, attract sensitivity and amplify the drama. The fleeting existence of flowers triggers urgency. Having no faces of their own, flowers in my work represent images that viewers of diverse backgrounds can identify with. Overcoming superficial dissimilarities, they serve as portraits of universal appeal. By portraying emotions using faceless metaphors I invite viewers to be active observers.

My landscape paintings are dominated by trees which like flowers are organic and mortal. Using water as a symbol of life and serenity, these trees may either constitute a barrier or yield to define a path. My landscapes, like my flowers, are not merely intended to reflect nature but rather to project an inner reflection, a metaphorical landscape.

I admire the intensity of emotions found in the works of the Expressionist artists. Like them, I too mix my soul with my paints. However, I strive to be subtle in my expression of the intense."

"The plants [in Liron's work] become anthropomorphic lovers"
Joseph Jacobs, Curator of American Art at the Newark Museum
