Lisa Krannichfeld

is an American painter. She studied Studio Art at Colorado College. During her undergraduate years as a biology major she took a course in entomology. For an assignment she had to create an insect collection, carefully collecting specimens, killing them in a way as to not damage their bodies, posing them to best display their anatomy and containing them in a pristine wooden box. Beautiful, numbered and preserved for all time. In this collection of work she wanted to explore capturing human emotion in a similar way. The problem with that is emotions are fleeting, inexact, and often blended with other feelings. The free, impulsive nature of watercolor offered a perfect medium. The colors bleed and crash into each other; thin in places, intense in others, as the complexity of the emotions unfold. The pieces are finished in a high gloss, indestructible resin, readying the specimens for display. Together, a Glass Menagerie.
