About Liron’s Paintings:
Liron paints nature both flowers and landscapes metaphorically. “Every painting is a self portrait. I do not paint flowers.” The artist uses form, color, and often texture to convey emotions. Flowers in Liron’s paintings are visual metaphors conveying relationships. Having no faces of their own, her flowers represent an image that viewers of diverse backgrounds can identify with. Overcoming superficial dissimilarities, they serve the artist as portraits of universal appeal.
Why Flowers? “The fragility of flowers, coupled with their ephemeral beauty, intriguing delicacy, and striking colors attract sensitivity and amplify the drama. The fleeting existence of flowers triggers urgency.”
Liron’s landscapes, like her flowers, are not merely intended to reflect nature but rather to project an inner reflection, a metaphorical journey. “In life we catch glimpses of our ideal. At times it is right behind the corner, so visible it is believable, almost reachable. Our proximity translates into a sweet promise.” Liron’s landscapes are dominated by a body of water seen through trees. Using water as a symbol of life, serenity, and that promise, the artist’s trees may either represent a barrier or they may yield to define a path. Most often they partially obscure, connoting a hurdle as they provide a glimpse.
I admire the intensity of emotions found in the works of the Expressionists. Like them, I too mix my soul with my paints. However, I strive to be subtle in my expression of the intense.”
