Lisa Anne Auerbach

Lisa Anne Auerbach served as the Arthur L. and Sheila Prensky Island Press Visiting Artist in the fall of 2017. In Snowflake, one of two projects she created during her residency with Island Press, Auerbach translated a traditional Hønsestrik knitting pattern into a large-scale relief print made from over one thousand individual tiles. In her second project, Ten Truths Self Evident, Auerbach created a series of ten woodblock prints. Each print is made up of four-word phrases (in response to MAGA) on fabric which are then strung together as a group in the form of bunting.
