Delving into a surrealist inspired world and romanticism Liliane A. Avalos is able to convey her personal life narrative through symbolism and vibrant colors. Nostalgia, death, relationships, and sex are recurring themes in her work. She subtlety approaches social and ethical issues with a feminine and dark sense of humor. Her Mexican-American heritage and collaged elements in all of her works create an illusory aesthetic that contrasts a profound influence in a diverse range of works. L. Avalos identifies with the absurdities of gender roles and sex appeal with a masculine and feminine gaze. As a consequence of conceptual investigations she is able to convey a unique sense of self and broadened prospective.
