SLOMA Lisa Solomon Exhibition

Jun 2 – Aug 28 2023
San Luis Obispo Museum of Art
1010 Broad St.

Profoundly interested in the idea of hybridization (sparked from her Hapa heritage – she is ½ Japanese and ½ Caucasian), Solomon’s mixed media works revolve thematically around discovering her heritage, the notion of domesticity, craft, feminism, and the pursuit of art as science/research.

She is obsessed with color and color theory and is drawn to found objects, tending to alter them conceptually so that their meanings and original uses or intents are repurposed. She often fuses “wrong” things together – recontextualizing their original purposes, and incorporating materials that inherently question and skirt the line between art and craft.
