Unraveling the Canvas: Rosemary Liss

It is the unique gift of an artist to create beauty from the unexpected, to look at a thing and see its potential in a way no one else does. ย In her A Sacred Space series, Baltimore artist Rosemary Lissย deconstructs the canvas then puts each back together in a way that emphasizes the beauty of the materials themselves.

By focusing on the parts that make up the whole, Liss compels us to think about the entirety of the process of art making. ย From the tree that was felled for it’s wood, to the wood cut and sanded for stretchers, to the threads woven together to create the canvas’ surface, through these tiny works of art, we realize that while most artists are individual creators, a village of hands are woven together in each piece.
