Please join Rebecca for lively chats with artists and crafters about their lives and lifestyles. Every artist has a story...we tell them here. Today I chat with Lisa Solomon, author of Knot Thread Stitch! Lisa’s mixed media works revolve thematically around domesticity, craft, and masculine and feminine triggers. She is drawn to found objects altering them conceptually so that their meanings and original uses or intents are re-purposed. She often fuses “wrong” things together – recontextualizing their original purposes, and incorporating materials that question the line between art and craft.
Lisa’s work has been featured in many books, and her drawings and installations have been featured in numerous national and international venues. Visit her online at http://www.lisasolomon.com.
