Welcome to the Art of Lissa Herschleb
As one gets older, life changes in rather intense ways. The loss of my father three years ago brought forth new imagery and depth to my work. This last year my sister passed and I am just now experiencing the dynamic of that event through my art. The loss, though, is actually gain. I can lose myself more in my work - dismissed now from the care of others. I'm having a child-like interaction with my work of amazement and delight. New textures and avenues are appearing enticing me to go in other directions. I still love defined edges but at this time, in August, 2013 as I write, the intrigue of texture is starting to take over the edges. The simplicity of black and white still sings to my esthetic but color, an unavoidable sensation to the eye, wants to make an appearance.
Very new is 3D sculpture, which will make its official appearance soon with a tease of it this year. All in all, in my last trimester of life I welcome the delayed intensity of self-expression and find at the top of my bucket list - studio time!
