Product Details

Artist Lisa Lichtenfels is acclaimed for pushing the boundaries of fabric sculpture. Photographs of Ms. Lichtenfels' sculptures- whether they be fantasy creatures, depictions of denizens of foreign cultures or portraits of celebrities such as Bette Midler, Barbara Streisand and Demi Moore- are often mistaken for photos of living beings. Indeed, viewers of her figures frequently report having the peculier sense of standing in the company of a living presense.

First and foremost, a gallery-in-print, this book is an unprecedented exhibition of Ms. Lichtenfels' work. Readers are invited to a personal tour with the artist through this exhibition, which features thirty-six of her most significant piece in panorama, accompanied by her personal and technical notes on the creation of each of these sculptures.
