Line and Color

Lisa Call


September 11 – October 20, 2012

 

Lisa Call creates bold geometric contemporary textile paintings where color is of primary importance and is combined intuitively, often in unexpected ways, employing a unique palette of cotton fabrics she hand dyes.  Her work is abstract but draws elements from many places: her love of the colors and geological forms of the southwest, repetition, pattern, and an attraction to human-made structures for containment such as fences and stone walls. Extensive stitching on the surface adds rich texture to her finished work.
