“SEN” ~ New work and installations by Lisa Solomon

Share this



We are very pleased to present our first solo show with Bay Area multi-media artist, Lisa Solomon. Lisa’s art practice is an ongoing investigation of gender archetypes and hybridizations, as well as an examination into her own personal history. Through obsessive repetition and re-contextualization, she takes traditional feminine handicrafts and elevates them into the realm of fine art. For this exhibition, Lisa, who was born to a Japanese mother, hones in on Japan’s historical and cultural fixation on thenumber 1000. She has created a unique interpretation of the 1000 cranes, and stitched a playful version of Senninbari, the “good luck” belts traditionally composed of 1000 knots, made by women and worn by their husbands to protect them while away at war. In a similar vein, she will be installing a wall of 1000 doilies, hand crocheted from 10 different hues of thread, sewn by her self and over 45 different women from around the world, and then arranged in a manner which will explore color and color theory. From each individual doily will dangle strands of thread, left purposefully to hang as a tangible testimony to process, functioning both as a remnant of the passage of time, and as a way to coax the work into a three dimensional space.

Lisa Solomon received her BA in art from UC Berkeley and her MFA from Mills College. She has had solo shows around the USA and abroad. She has twice been a SECA award nominee and was recently an artist in residence at the Oakland Art Museum. Lisa currently lives and works in the Bay Area.
