Inspiring Artist

I stumbled across this artist when I searched for silk organza sculpture, Lisa Kellner.
Tunnel Vision

Silk organza, thread, pigment, monofilament. Installed at the UICA, Dec 2009. 73"H x 30"W
Almost Perfect

silk, pigment, thread, surgical pins 42” x 31” x 6”

Silk, pigment, thread, monofilament 58” x 36” x 43”

These are so beautiful and really inspire me to continue pursuing my own silk sculpture installation ideas.

Here's a couple shots of a wave sculpture prototype, I've been working on in my studio. This is nuno felted and dyed silk organza, wire and plastic boning hung with filament.

I've been known to say that nature never ceases to amaze me. These photos were taken on Providenciales, in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The waters surrounding the island are gorgeous turquoises that change depending on the depth of the water. I really couldn't dream of a better place to go while working on my current body of work.

The last 2 photos are of a silk sculpture I worked on before the trip, it's crazy how it looks like the colors and forms I photographed. I know there will be more work coming out of this trip. We stayed right on the beach and the sound of the waves rolling onto the shore lulled me to sleep every night.
