Lissa Nilsson

This work is a 20-inch square of mixed media including acrylic, colored pencil, embroidery thread, and computer graphics on multiple papers. It has a black square frame with white matting. In the center is a gray silhouette of the profile of a head and face. Aligned over it, a cut-out of a painted face profile is raised up on foam board. Underneath, the back half of the head is missing to reveal a pink brain filled with words. The brainstem is connected by threads to a black panel with two rows of red and orange symbols on the bottom. The background has four swaths of pastel colors, each with its own seasonal symbol.
