LYNN HANSON GALLERY
a space filled with experiences
Sense of Place
Imagined and Transformed
December 1-January 31
Lisa JonesMoore/Transformed (Mexico)
My newest body of work represents deeply soulful feelings that I experience while visiting Mexico. The cruciform imagery in my work signifies a “crossroads," with many paths to choose from. The use of lotus pod imagery represents my Buddhist beliefs. Beauty from ugliness, freedom to “bloom” in spite of less than perfect circumstances, and, ultimately, enlightenment. Interestingly, I feel closest to this state of “being” while in Mexico, a country deeply steeped in Catholicism.

"As a child I was transfixed looking at pictures in my favorite book at my Grandmother’s house, East of the Sun, West of the Moon. These folk tales were illustrated by a Danish artist, Kay Nielsen. This began my imaginings of Denmark.
