Lisa Marie Jakab creates abstract imagery about liminal spaces using biomorphic forms informed by nature and the cosmos. Generating her own interpretation of beautiful imagery, she explores the psychology of cognition. Her process of making is reflective of these interests and resides in the play between fragility and force as well as the purposeful and the accidental.
