    Art Brokerage: Lillia Frantin American Artist: Lillia Frantin's paintings are uniquely her own and yet keep within a Modernist tradition that places emotional response at the center of art. Art and life are the subject ; painting is how we experience them. After Modernism, while art can still be about beauty, it will be a beauty that is complex, honest, deeply personal and engaging. Art is now connected in a direct way to life, to the viewer, to us. Reading her notes, from an early age Lillia was drawn to art, deciding to be an artist before she even knew such a thing existed. But it was only after an undergraduate minor in art history and a serious study of the Modernist masters- Cezanne, Van Gogh, Matisse and Bonnard- that she fully understood the potential power and freedom that painting, as an art form, might mean to her. In the studio, she began testing the limits of representation and discovered a visual vocabulary that could go beyond the constraints of description and use interpretive color, line and composition to literally reveal the spirit of things. Never satisfied with pure abstraction, inspired by 'life around her' and the simple pleasures of seeing, feeling and responding, she continued to resist categories - decorative vs serious, abstract vs realism - to paint from within. Experimenting, she invented a very personal language - symbolic, rhythmic and defined by vibrant color and expressive line, the tactility of paint and surface, strong formal composition and unexpected, shifting perspectives. Today, her paintings invite us to explore the play between breathy, open areas of unpainted canvas and bold drawing, between the feminine and the masculine, between the seen and the felt. Revealing the 'life-force' in nature and the everyday - fruits and flowers, patterned cloth, the movement of water, air , clouds - her art is alive with freshness, luminosity, energy.
