Lisa Mei Ling Fong
I am an Assemblage Artist. I collect and arrange relics in themed “Introversion Boxes” to create sentimental memorials. Expressing my thoughts of Life in Introversion Boxes gives me a way to appreciate and reflect upon our fleeting existence.
Assemblage artwork has become my favorite mode of storytelling and is derived from a combination of influences. I am mainly a self-taught artisan. I developed a passion for my art by documenting different cultures via photography, painting, journal writing and memento collecting.
I have always been sentimental about places, their history, the human condition, its adversities and subsequent triumphs. Objects become, in effect, vicarious representations of people and places and thus represent their energy.
I honed my art skills by working in theatrical properties and set construction across the United States, including becoming a props master Off Broadway in New York City. I currently work at my newly remodeled Eerie Art Studio & Gallery in San Francisco at the Splung Warehouse. I am represented by Strychnin Gallery, Berlin/New York City/London.
