The Fuel and Lumber Company Presents...
Lisa Iglesias, stick stack
With stick stack, Lisa Iglesias presents new work related to varying modes of time – from the quick spurt of spray paint cans to the epic movements of glacial bodies and the relative time of mountain and rock formation. Casting her attention to graphite, paper, and photo-based media of geologic and man-made formations, Iglesias uses pattern and texture to play with our fluctuating experiences with temporality and materiality.
In conjunction with the F&L installation, Lisa will give an artist talk, sponsored by The University of Alabama's Department of Art and Art History, February 11th, 6 pm, 203 Garland Hall.
Lisa Iglesias is a visual artist and Assistant Professor at the University of Florida. In her artist talk, Lisa will discuss her collaborations with her sister, Janelle Iglesias, as well as her individual practice grounded in drawing.
Here is a link to a very recent video made about the collaborative aspect of her work:
*The opening reception will take place at the F&L-TPS immediately following the talk.
F&L - TPS, 2003 8th Street, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
