Drawings by Lisa Rydin Erickson.
Photographs by Angie Wiseman.
The Artist Mercantile is pleased to present COLOR + DESIGN a two person show about artists using a digital medium to create their unique art of choice. Lisa Rydin Erickson uses her iPad to create lively and imaginative illustrations while Angie Wiseman uses her digital camera to create innovative abstract photography. Side by side you will see how each artist expresses herself using a strong color and design element.
Lisa is a Saint Paul native who received a B.F.A. from Kansas City Art Institute in painting and printmaking. She has a back ground in painting murals and backdrops and also taught art at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum with at risk teens. In 2011 Lisa started producing digital art while she was commuting to and from work on the bus. Little did she know how much she would enjoy the process and results of these bus rides. Within a year she started quite a considerably large portfolio of work for herself. Lisa Rydin Erickson now sells her prints, cards, and fabric designs in shops around the Twin Cities. She also has illustrated books and made motion animations using this contemporary medium.
After taking just one black and white photography class, Angie Wiseman will be presenting a small sampling of her large body of color photography. She has over 1,000 photographs in her portfolio. Her work will give you the sensation that makes you want to reach inside of them. They will often leave you questioning the subject matter and technique utilized. Angie describes her photography as ”inspirational fusion”. Per Angie,” People find my work very mysterious, everyone sees something different; there is beauty in my art. I feel so fortunate to have found my purpose. I hope in some small way my art may inspire you to look deeper within yourself. Enjoy the journey.”
Show ends September 30th.
