Have I Told You Lately, Lisa Perlman’s first solo exhibition, explores the relationship between love and anxiety and the communicative barrier that exists within a family. The exhibition will comprise of printed works on paper including sculpture and installation. Lisa uses layered imagery influenced by photos of her family, her childhood home and domestic traditions. These include patterned wallpaper, Royal Dalton figurines, blue jays and carnations. Fragmented text – words and sentences drawn from Lisa’s journal – help to connect these images that might otherwise only be meaningful to her.
