Rooted in the language of decay, erosion and disease, my work merges intricate microcosms with immense topographies. ~ Lisa Kellner

What you are looking at here is neither high speed photography of dye diffusion in water nor photoshopped jellyfishes, these are site responsive work by American artist Lisa Kellner.  Using hand formed silk and thread, Kellner has created sculptures that maintain the shape of organ-like forms and cellular structures.  Her creative method is time-consuming.  The silk is not dyed, rather, it undergoes a lengthy process of applying pigment, ink, acrylic, bleach and compost to achieve the desired effect.
