Collection: Shut Me Up, Shut Me Down - a SOLO Exhibition by Liana Vargas

About Liana Vargas


SHUT ME UP, SHUT ME DOWN SALA 2020 

Liana Vargas is an Adelaide Hills-based figurative artist and instructor.

For this year’s SALA exhibition Adelaide Hills based artist Liana Vargas has made a compelling series of paintings that bring to light the subjugation, silencing, and violence perpetrated against women and girls in our society.     

These large-scale oil paintings, while beautiful to look at, clearly show there is something seething beneath the surface. The message comes across loud and clear.   

The figures in these works are realistically painted with the background and spatial elements reduced to help highlight the fact that the models are isolated and alone.     The crucifix is a repeating compositional element that unites all the paintings, it is also meant to be taken literally… being female is a ‘Cross to Bear’.       

While it seems a hopeless quest to end the violence, domination, suppression and debilitating inequalities against women Liana hopes to show that someone is listening; that someone cares and understands.
