An Introduction to the
Work of Liliana Golubinsky


Liliana Golubinsky uses paint, pastel, collage, and black and white imagery to tell stories about politics, love, brutality, childhood, loss – the human drama. Her style is reminiscent of the cartoon-like characters of Philip Guston and Jean Dubuffet. The canvases are brimming with soldiers, toys, lovers, and even buildings blowing apart. The whimsy and animation swirl off the page. The ironic depiction of adult subjects in these alienated beings are represented in incongruent micro-stories softened by being presented as fables and dreams from childhood.


But first, Liliana Golubinsky takes us on a tour of her studio, describing some of her work (like blue cups that are acrylic and pastel on linen), showing work from another year (work that is pastel on canvas), and the studio itself. She points out that like many, her workshop is chaotic.

  1. An excellent work, she is an artist that I have followed for years and she always amazes me with the quality of her drawing and color management

  2. I first saw her work at Rubbers in Buenos Aires a decade ago, was very taken and bought one – high esthetic value while being lots of fun
