February 17 – April 22, 2001
The Polk Museum of Art presents an exhibition by Florida artist Lise Drost. Drost is an assistant professor and the head of printmaking oat the University of Miami. She creates large-scale, mixed-media prints and drawings using layers of images, colors, patterns, and surfaces. By gathering images from her surroundings and combining them within real and imaginary spaces, Drost is able to gain new insight into her relationship with the world around her. Her goal is to create complex imagery that serves as a starting point for the viewer’s own thoughts, and she strives to make artworks that keep the viewer occupied and engaged over a long period of time, revealing different images as time progresses.
