Photolithograph, collage and embossing

Liliana Porter
Argentine, b. 1941
Follow

Liliana Porter produces prints, drawings, paintings, photography, video works, and installations that dabble in the absurd. Porter juxtaposes figurines of popular cultural icons, children’s toys, and other kitsch objects in surreal compositions, so that unlikely relationships emerge—to unsettling or fantastical effect. In her photograph Dialogue with Penguin (1999), for example, a toy penguin converses with a bust of Christ. Porter cites René Magritte as a major influence, and her works reveal a sense of wry humor that reflects that of the famous Belgian Surrealist.
