Lisa Congdon at Gallery Hijinks

Friday, July 1, 2011 · 1 Comment

Lisa Congdon’s new work at Hijinks Gallery has a decidedly wintry theme despite opening on Fourth of July weekend. For those who don’t know Congdon’s backstory, she didn’t begin making art until she was in her 30’s and is entirely self-taught – attributes she considers essential to who she is as an artist.


“I’ve always been attracted to barren, arctic landscapes in general, and I think that watching the documentary (Heima by Sigur Rós) was the tipping point for this new body of work…” – SF Examiner via Hijinks blog.

    My goodness, that is exactly what art is all about isn’t it? Self-taught, unfettered, and beautiful. Thank you for yet another introduction to an another wonderful artist!
