Last week, on one of the hottest days we've had in a while I headed over to Lisa Congdon's studio to catch a glimpse of her new work for her upcoming show Boreas, which opens this Saturday at Gallery Hijinks. It was a scorcher for sure but it's always a pleasure to hang out with Lisa. Her studio is chocked full of color, creativity and inspiration.
I thought what Faythe Levine had to say in her written piece for the gallery catalog describes Lisa's work perfectly:
"Observing Congdon’s work over the past several years has been like taking a trip from one fantastical land to another. She revisits themes and palettes, but what is refreshing is her unmatched ability to build an entire world around a themed visual obsession. The work created for Boreas is the perfect example of Congdon’s capacity to do just that, and her rich imagination is contagious."
Boreas opens this Saturday July 2nd running through July 30th at Gallery Hijinks.
