Background Information about Lilya Corneli


Images from another time?

Lilya Corneli, Armenian artist living in Hamburg/Germany, says about her pictures: “My work always evolves from intuition. I understand my images as the result of an emotion which emerged at the time of their creation, and not as much as expression of precise visual ideas. My images seem raw, in other words: simply emotional. The best way for me to express these emotions is visual expression.”
It is fascinating to see, taking “Selbstportrait in rot (Self-Portrait in Red)” as an example, how Corneli transforms herself with the simplest artistic techniques into a historic time, which is far away from the present, but nevertheless seems familiar due to the contemporary character of her self-conscious expression.
