What is your process? 

My work stems from a framing of resonant gestures that ritualize and familiarize psychological narratives and personal memories.

What medium(s) do you employ? 

Physical computing, Metal Fabrication, wood fabrication, Silicone, Epoxy and Gypsum Casting

Who has influenced you work?

Lygia Clark, Kelly Dobson, Bruce Nauman, Rebecca Horn, Tim Hawkinson

Have you shifted the direction of your work and if so, why?

My work incorporates responsive and interactive components. I began incorporating these elements after working as an animatronics fabricator at a window display company.

What can viewers expect to see at your exhibition?

My current show at Honfleur gallery May4- june 8th consists of  a sculptural installation with sound elements, a kinetic interactive sculpture, an immersive scent and light object, and several interstitial castings, along with light-works derived from these castings, mimic and sometimes manipulate viewers’ body language by evoking gestural interactions between bodies.

Liz Lessner’s studio is located at Red Dirt Studio, 4051 34th St., Mount Rainier, MD.
