Lisa Call’s contemporary textile paintings explore pattern, structure, memory and adventure. The influence of her extensive background in computer science can also be spotted in her bold geometric
compositions and abstracted landscapes.
Instead of brushing colour onto canvas, she paints by arranging hand cut shapes and lines from her vibrantly coloured hand-dyed fabric into dynamic designs. Extensive stitching adds rich texture to
the finished surface.
Lisa exhibits extensively in both solo and group shows across the globe. Previous museum exhibits include the Danforth Museum of Art in Massachusetts, The Mint Museum of Craft + Design in North Carolina and The Atlantic Center in Florida. Her textile paintings are included
in numerous public and private collections, including the University Hospitals in Cleveland and the University of Pennsylvania.
Her work is represented by galleries in New Zealand and Philadelphia.
Lisa moved to New Zealand in 2015 from Denver, Colorado.
