feature friday XXII - Lena Wolff



Lena Wolff is an American artist working in a variety of media such as drawing, painting, collage and public projects. Her practice is best described in her own words, which you can read more of here:
My practice is informed by folk art, anthropomorphic fables, animism, early American craft traditions and the natural world. For the last several years, I’ve been working on collages that borrow methodology from textile processes and quilt making, incorporating various individually glued hole-punched papers, pinpricks and layers of hand painted paper cuts that resemble appliqué. In making these works, the paper is handled as if it were fabric, using needles and often joining multiple panels of paper together to make large-scale paper quilts. The labor-intensive and hand-driven process is tactile, meditative and intimate.  
Lisa's latest exhibition was featured on Art Hound.
