Lisa Mossel has been taking photographs since 1998. She has found strength and beauty in "the intimacy of smaller landscapes, like that of a flower." Lisa has found inspiration in revealing the natural beauty of what is found right in her backyard. When she ventures out with her camera she is "in pursuit of the beauty in our everyday." Lisa's photographs showcase the amazing detail and wonder of the minuscule world of botanicals. Please stop by the library soon to see these amazing images for yourself.
I have been creating this wall installation since 2010. Its title is Library and it currently consists of eleven panels and is made up of many (over 150 at this point) individual book-like boxes that house artifacts, curiosities, my own art and other small constructions. I am drawn to the stained and abused surfaces of old and discarded objects, the stuff of previous lives and times and the rustier, the more ancient looking the better. Each individual piece is constructed by hand.
