Liliana Pasalic

Liliana Pasalic has a background and formal education in industrial design, which organically transmuted into a full-time art practice over the last decade. Her practice centers on painting and tapestry while drawing from design recollections and blurring the boundaries between these vaguely intertwined forms. Her work delves into art history, identity, the subconscious and relationships. Occupying the realm between abstraction and figuration, it references women’s roles, stereotypical suburban depictions, and iconic symbols infused with her individual outlook, as creator and observer. Over the last 20 years she has exhibited design and artwork in solo and group shows around the world, including Zagreb, Ljubljana, New York, Bruxelles, Vienna, Adelaide, Jerusalem, Canberra. Pasalic is represented by Studio Gallery in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and The Nada Gallery in Sydney. In 2023 she was a resident in The Mill as well as chosen as a finalist in the National Capital Art Prize.
