Wishing For A Nature Walk
One of my very favorite artists, Lisa Congdon, has a new show opening Thursday night at Swallowtail (2217 Polk St.) in San Francisco from 7 – 9 pm. Look at some of the incredible pieces she created for the show:
You can learn more about the materials she used & see more of these pieces here. I really love this work & admire her willingness to use old materials in new, inventive ways. I have a deep, abiding fear of using old books, papers, etc. in collage work. It’s too bad because I have a growing collection of old books I’ve picked up expressly for the purpose of making collages. I think Lisa’s wonderful work will inspire me to conquer my fear & start the page ripping! Have a lovely day.
