New Liliane Tomasko works at the Timothy Taylor Gallery

London, 2 July 2013, Art Media Agency (AMA). From 6 September to 5 October 2013, the Timothy Taylor Gallery is to host a solo exhibition of works by Swiss artist Liliane Tomasko. Entitled “Vestige”, the exhibition is to feature twelve canvases and works on paper. Each of the pieces began as a polaroid image, captured by the artist, which she then blurs and distorts. Inspired by the still life tradition, Tomasko’s works are also strongly influenced by her Hungarian heritage, her childhood in Switzerland and her nomadic way of life. Liliane Tomasko was born in Zurich and studied at Camberwell School of Art (1991-1992) and Chelsea College of Art (1995). In 1998, she obtained her MFA from the Royal Academy in London. She has been the subject of exhibitions at the New York Studio School (2010), the Zweigstelle in Berlin (2010), the Hotel des Arts in Toulon, France (2008 and 2011), as well as a major travelling solo exhibition at the IVAM in Valencia, Spain, which toured the country before moving to...

London, 15 September 2011, Art Media Agency (AMA). “Lee Friedlander: America By Car & The New Cars 1964” is currently running at Timothy Taylor Gallery until 1 October. The gallery, dedicated to modern and contemporary art, is located in Mayfair in London and was founded by Timothy Taylor. First opening in 1996 at Bruton Place, it later moved to rue Dering in 2003. In October 2007, it opened a second exhibition area on 190 m² and has presented over fifty exhibitions and produced over twenty publications since. Lee Friedlander (1934–) studied photography at the Centre of Art of Los Angeles. Moving to New York in 1956, he produced several jazz photographs for album covers. His first works were influenced by Eugène Atget, Robert Frank and Walker Evans. In his photos, he captures isolated images of urban life, reflections in store windows, building structures, posters and notices. In 2005, the MoMA presented a retrospective of Friedlander’s works, later exhibited at the Jeu de Paume in Paris in 2006. Through 192 snapshots, the show retraces the photographers numerous travels over the last decade, mostly throughout the American states. Captured entirely from inside hire cars and, generally, in the driver’s seat, the photographs play with reflections in the car’s wing and rear–view...
