Lissa Robinson, Swell, Detail 2006 - Image courtesy of the artistLissa Robinson

Lissa Robinson's exhibition was one of the top picks for 2008 in FFWD.

In a piece titled Swell, I confound issues of high/low and body/paint through an absurd personification of a paint spill that has been “infected” with hundreds of holes that swell around a large orifice. Inspired by red "pool stains" on my studio floor and the optical play of seeds in raspberry jam, this piece is a humorous and sensual commentary on the inflammations of body. My use of fabric is intentionally used to invoke the layers and absurdities of the body while speaking to the history of dress and adornment through its surface textures and structural patterning.
