Lisa Iglesias

Lisa Iglesias' pencil is a scalpel, her white bed of paper is a surgical table. These writhing bodies, frozen in frame and drowning in infinite space, should haunt you. They are aggressive. They are masculine. They are tightly controlled moments of drama and momentum, hostage to the artist's obsessive hand. The subjects feel conquered, splayed, and lost to a battle. When grouped together, the drawings illustrate a memory of ever distant Americana and evoke a dying mythology as romantic and grotesque as any fairytale or fable.
