For Liane Mathes Rabbath, a Luxembourger by birth, Lebanese by heart for more than 20 years, art and creation have no secrets. “Offering and offering oneself pure moments of pleasure through each of one’s creations”, will be the leitmotivs of this artist who has found in art, a mode of expression that perfectly suits her sensitivity to others. It was with Tania Bakalian Safiedine (Tanbak) that she discovered her passion for collage, a technique that would “stick” to her skin. In the 2000s, she fell under the spell of Damascus paper, a thin, satin-finished cigarette paper used to wrap cigarettes, rich in highly geometric calligraphic patterns and arabesques. She tamed this material, which would reign as absolute master in all her works.Her paintings evoke celebration and dreams, where bursting bubbles of life and energy with vibrant colours and cylindrical motifs of cosmic and astral aspect. And then she pushed her passion for painting further and introduced gold leaf into her work, despite the extreme fragility of this material. Her works will then be worked on a paper base twisted into strings, then reworked with gold leaves after collage on the canvas.This artist, who navigates between the colours of her adopted country Lebanon and the palette of her native country, Luxembourg, continues her research in this direction, which has nourished her inspiration and filled her thirst for beauty and creation.
