Life in Wondermountain, Opening December 5

Craft & Design Home

Artist Lisa Congdon has a solo show opening at Paper Boat in Milwaukee, WI this Friday and I’m super jealous I can’t see it in person. Her new work is just stunning!

For her upcoming December 2008 show at Paper Boat Gallery in Milwaukee–entitled Life in WonderMountain–Lisa will continue to explore the chimeric world of the WonderMountain dwellers, whose world is made up of opposites. In Lisa’s first three-dimensional installation, she will portray the bizarre world of WonderMountain and its inhabitants. Using worn vintage crochet and sepia-toned photographs juxtaposed with fantastical brightly colored neon geometric details, Lisa creates an enchanted world of old and new, graphic and earthy, frightening and familiar.
