Lieber’s inspiration goes back in part to the artist Fragonard and to the Rococo period. Her current work incorporates influences from Toulouse-Lautrec and Edouard Manet, for example. Her lush imagery is laced with a dash of symbolism and irony. She reformulates classical elements into modern narratives that combine the joy of life and eros with transience, thus altering our ordinary perception of time. Her paintings speak a powerful and refreshing visual language.
Sala Lieber was born in 1980 in Budapest, Hungary. She lives and works as a painter in Neuss, Germany, where her studio is located: salalieber.com.
