To walk through their created space is to journey out into the world at large through sensations transformed, transported, a transmuted expanse, ambiance of exoticness, an air of peacefulness permeates this creative space, inviting one to be present in body yet allows the mind to travel beyond, to immerse oneself in thoughts, moods, dreams…Transported beyond the boundaries of space and time, for a brief instance of existence. Through their exquisite paintings, one is carried on wings of contemplation to a mood of quiet tranquility. Light, color, sound, vision – elements offering an opportunity to step into another realm…

Lili & Jesko’s main intention is to create moods. Creating this they work with layers in numerous ways.
By covering the walls in their exhibitions with painted or gilded wall hangings, they give the space a feeling of shelter and security, a feeling of being wrapped in a coat of colour, of sensations, of impressions.
Even the lighting of their art spaces, subtle and subdued, is created by them, thus celebrating an appreciation of layered shades of graceful shadows. They praise all things delicate and nuanced, everything softened by shadows and the patina of age, understated and natural uniqueness.
By designing their MOODS ENVIRONMENTS PAINTINGS, which are connected to their travels, Lili & Jesko have been staging environments since 2003. The surroundings become part of the artwork as the space is an integral component of it. These created spaces invite us to stay a while and contemplate, the space grants an existential perception of life and intense sensuality which enables the visitor to partake in the external and internal journeys undertaken by the artists through time and existence.
