Tonight in Portland at Antler Gallery, Lisa Ericson¬†will be opening a new show entitled Islands alongside some sculptural works from¬†Crystal Morey. Building on concepts conceived in previous body of works (LA ’18 & PDX ’18), the locally-based artist returns with more acrylic on panel paintings that feature fauna and flora, entire ecosystems, balanced on the backs of different creatures. The science-based and surreal imagery from Ericson simultaneously brings to mind the global refugee crisis and environmental issues such as global warming.
