Sara Lisch: BITE ME
September 2nd, 2022 – October 8th, 2022
Selections from Sara Lisch’s series BITE ME explores the relationships between objectification, sexuality, and sustenance. Sexual objectification is defined as an act of treating a person as a mere object of sexual desire. Experientially, sexuality and objectification intermingle in ways that defy simple definition. Lisch’s multi-media work touches on the complicated dynamic between the theory of objectification and the experience of sexuality.
Much of my work is floating in the uncharted waters of the inner narrative. Interpersonal dynamics between people and their complicated relationships within themselves lead me to a visual exploration of the human psyche. Universal themes such as love, sorrow, hope, humor, and irony are used to navigate and reflect the many facets of emotion. I use figurative allegory to narrate stories and open windows into the human experience. Animal symbolism is often integrated into my work suggesting a primal connection either with oneself or as a vehicle to animate different levels of consciousness. Much of my creative inspiration comes from the mystery of the subconscience intersecting with the complexities of the world around us.
