Temporary Residence Artist in Focus
Lisa Wilkens is the second artist our Artist in Focus series, part of the Temporary Residence exhibition with Aid & Abet. Find out more about Lisa’s work below.
My work is fundamentally based in drawing with a particular interest in portraiture, its limitations and possibilities. Recently, I have developed a series of ‘prevented portraits’ dealing with the political aspects of recognition and resistance, identification and identity. I draw images on lithographic stones, based on historical photographs that I find online. Using old paper collected over the years, I take prints from these stones.
