Opening Reception: Saturday, December 10, 5 – 7 pm
For Susan Lisbin, art is a process she utilizes to figure out how people relate to one another. Using abstract images with human qualities, she creates an environment to explore our connections. Her exhibition at the Garrison Art Center is a communication between paintings and sculptures, and the observer is invited to join the conversation.
Profoundly hard of hearing since age two, Susan spent a lot of time silently observing others and her relationship to them. Discovering abstract expressionism freed her as an artist. Susan’s intuitive process helped her develop own artistic vocabulary.
Lisbin’s work explores tension, sexuality, and humor, illustrating how people interact, are free from confinement, or stand their ground. Each piece is a unique platform from which juxtapositions and identities can be discovered in this world we share.
