Glass Cathedrals: A series of artboxes containing brilliant tiny worlds
Opening Reception Thursday, Ocotber 11 6-8pm
Using a combination of words, adapted miniature figurines (that are often customized to look like particular individuals who are commissiong the work), and the minimalist, dramatic and often sparkling space within the shadowbox, each artwork makes their own small statement on our complicated lives.
About Lisa Swerling:
Encouraged in her philosophical musings as an undergraduate at Oxford University, Lisa was determined to forge a path in the real world armed only with a headful of mildly eccentric thoughts, a handful of beloved glitter, and an inclination to go with the flow.
Somewhere along the way (between a year living in the Indian Ocean Seychelles islands, months spent traveling through the bush of Southern Africa, and a whole lot of lovely days hanging out in London), the concept of Glass Cathedrals was born.
Today, six years on, there are more than fifty Glass Cathedrals artworks in the series. Lisa is represented by galleries in London, New York and Lisbon and orders for the treasured artworks come from all over the world. She now lives with her family in San Anselmo, Marin, having moved there from London in 2010.
