Artist Talk with Lisa Reinertson, featured in Sentience, at the Epperson Gallery.
December 11, 2021. 4p-6p.
The inhumanity and militarization of our border policies weighs on our country’s conscience, and grieves my heart. By creating artworks that speak to the dignity and struggle of the personal experience, my intention is to touch our hearts. My hope is to remind us of the human decency that our country has tried to stand for, and to inspire people to think about how we can reclaim the goodness in us as a people.
I care about justice, about civil rights, about compassion and peace, and protecting the earth and all living creatures from extinction. It is my intent that through beauty and nuance, my artwork stand as a subversive act.
