Lisa Liedgren: "New Work"

March 27, 2003—April 26, 2003 | Reception Thursday, March 27th, 6-8PM

Lisa Liedgren’s paintings depict sequential phases of the moon over a period of time relating to particular historical events. The succession of crescents and circles organized on a grid result in a three-dimensional optical effect that varies in depth as the viewer moves around the painting. The paintings titled Tom and Nicole and 1939-1945 relate to the length of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s marriage and World War II respectively. The moon cycles in Freedom begin with the events of 2001 and Le Deuxieme Sexe with the commencement of Simone de Beauvoir’s writing of her book “The Second Sex.” The end point of these two pieces is determined according to the size of the canvas
