    About The Work

    From the series, "What is Given", an ongoing pursuit of the History of the Mundane. "What Is Given" is a series of oil paintings that take the well-used utilitarian object and transforms it into an emotive landscape. Kellner has long been interested in the histories of the most mundane objects, the significance they hold and the meanings they convey. With these paintings Lisa Kellner wants to impart a semblance of that emotional terrain, turning the object with all of its age and imperfection into a panorama that conflates still life with landscape. 

    This series of paintings uses antique embroidered linens as their subject matter. The pillow cases, napkins, sheets and tablecloths made up a trousseau of delicately embellished home-wares to be passed down from one generation to the next. Hand made and crisply starched and folded, one can sense the expectations of what’s to come. In these paintings, Kellner wants to create a landscape of expectation. A sense of the pervasive emotion that takes hold.
