Lisa Solomon

Lisa Solomon is a california artist who comes from a long line of crafters. She creates imaginative drawings from a bevy of mixed media, including thread, wire, charcoal, watercolor, ink, satin, felt, and the wall, as well as paper and canvas. Her work is inspired by childhood themes, found objects and the differences in masculine and feminine attributes. It's simple and sweet at first glance, but underneath layers of thread and transparent swatches of fabric, the domestic imagery can feel unsettlingly intimate.
