Alternative Wall Art For The Modern Home:
The artwork to the left represents some of my current work known as "Color Totems" and "Fiber Fountains". These artworks were inspired by last year's visit to the Dwell Design Show in Los Angeles, one of the largest home design shows in the country. Much of Dwell's offerings focus on the use of green materials for the Modern home. The look is clean and contemporary with a bit of a Modernist flair. Dwell also represents some of the most cutting edge technology and design for the home that you'll likely find. It's also about color and all the warmth and personality that it provides. My attendance at that show inspired these works of art because I wanted to contribute to the beauty of the this home design movement.
"Color Totems" are an alternative to traditional weaving but offer the same warmth and vibrance. For more detailed information, please go to: Fiberwire Sculptures and Wall Art.
About The Work:
Welcome to Studio Van Herik, home of multi-disciplinary artist, Lisa Van Herik. As you go thru my website here, you'll find many years of varied artworks. Like a lot of artists, I've tried many different forms of artwork in my career and certainly enjoyed my own artistic process. Also like a lot of artists, I tend to think the most recent work is the best and in my case, that would be the new fiberwire wall art and round paintings. So, why do we artists tend to think that their latest work is their best? Well, we are constantly learning, experimenting and improving our artwork. We're raising the bar on ourselves, always trying to make it better. And this is my best.
