I will be presenting my work and giving critiques in Chris Nau’s “Conversations Around Drawing” class at the SMFA on April 5th, from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. As a SMFA alum, I thought it might be nice to show current students some of the work I completed for my MFA exhibition. Looking at these old favorites and thinking about how they relate to my current practice has  made for a contemplative and productive studio morning.

About Lisa Young

My hybrid studio practice includes installation, book, video, web, and photography. My projects examine the intersection of the pedestrian, the repetitive, and the imperfect with the transcendent, the beautiful, and the perfect. I am interested in the way that the repetitive action of accumulating and organizing can create its own poetics. I grew up in Illinois, completed the Whitney ISP program in 1996, and teach Interdisciplinary Synthesis at the Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, MA. You can see my work at
