Lisa Blas



Lisa Blas 2013 - Bio


Working in the forms of collage, painting, photography and installation, I address the legacy of historical record and its extension into the contemporary. I am as much interested in the sources I research in cultural archives as in the aesthetic transformation of the material I collect from museum announcements, institutional brochures, mass produced paint swatches, and photographs I have made or found. As I attempt to compose moments of déjà-vu and repetition, I play with the relationship between the surface of the hand-made image and that of its digital surrogate.

I begin each project with the study of a particular moment in time, drawing on art history, the history of photography, and political / social history. Their intersections provide a space of oscillation between fact and fiction, where overlapping timelines and representations inhabit a dialectic of re-play and defamiliarization.
