Lisa Kellner

It’s mind blowing to see what artist Lisa Kellner is able to do with silk organza, thread, and various pigments. Her immense sculptures take the shape of varicolored cell structures and organ-like forms . . . and look almost as if they are floating weightlessly in fluid or underwater. Honestly, WTF!

  1. It’s beautiful but there is creepy, jelly fish quality which makes me uncomfortable.

    That third shot can almost double as underwater ink art! Love how organic the shapes feel…in this peachy, fleshy color, there’s an understated human factors side that quietly seeps through…Moving me for Monday morning honey…love this!

    I agree with the other comments– gorgeous & disconcerting & a tad unnerving all rolled in to one!

  14. I also agree with what everyone has said! I much prefer the sculptures in the blue spectrum. They are far more appealing to me, (probably because they don’t look so much like they’ve just been removed from someone!!)

  17. Very feminine, very pink! I’ve noticed many female artists are not afraid of pink. Is it ironic?
