ARTIST OF THE WEEK: Joyce Lieberman

Joyce Lieberman is a visual artist from Venice, California. Her "UNStill Life" series features painted works on paper and canvas displaying flower-filled vases in luscious colors with colliding and overlapping pattern. The most recent works are more restful and about 'Trees'.

Lieberman has worked in collage. The largest series is called the Personal Archaeologies. They are created from older paintings reworking and mixed with recycled bits of interest that I find in stamps, paper, and fabric." The "Venn Diagram" series has evolved from the collages and an attempt to "Figure things out'. The inside partitions of wine cases have collapsible cardboard that look cool when painted. I have been looking at this for years and for the Twitter 140 show have been able to make use of them the best way possible.
