This Thursday we are inspired by a local artist, Lisa Krannichfeld. We recently came across her work while on Facebook, and fell in love.
She was born and raised here in Little Rock, into a mix of Southern American and Chinese cultures. These cultures and traditions have greatly impacted her work, especially when the woman is the subject. Lisa gives the women in her paintings power and a voice, challenging the mindset to serve and suppress, common in the south and Chinese cultures. Lisa often uses traditional Chinese ink along with watercolor in an uncontrolled, free flowing manor.
She is currently working on a new collection called, Dressed, that she will exhibit sometime in May at the M2 Gallery in Little Rock. We love the way the strong patterns play with the soft, flowing watercolor.
Lisa has been featured in multiple publications. Some of those include The Jealous Curator, Anthology Magazine, and was recently named the "One to Watch" by the Saatchi Art Magazine.
Here in Arkansas, Soiree' has named here a "Woman to Watch".
Her work is included in many private and corporate collections worldwide.
