Juror: Lisa Myers Bulmash

Lisa Myers Bulmash Lisa Myers Bulmash

As a visual artist, I am obsessed with joining elements that seem to have no relationship to each other. As an artist parent, I am driven to spotlight the contradictory narratives in American society that marginalize the most vulnerable. These collisions of ideas lead me to work in three mediums: collage, assemblage sculpture and altered books. In each medium, I explore issues of identity, trust and imperfect memories.

I choose to center African American and female experiences, to expand the classical practice of using an individual narrative to illuminate the general human condition. My hope is that my work recognizes viewers who experience a daily sense of erasure, and that it brings others out of the isolation created by privilege.

Lisa Myers Bulmash is a collage and book artist who works primarily in acrylics, paper and found objects. Informally trained, Myers Bulmash began her career making handmade cards. After her father’s death in 2006, the artist felt compelled to take more personal risks in her creative life. Questions of identity, trust and the imperfect memory now drive most of her work. The artist aims to nudge the viewer into recognizing our shared stories, especially those narratives that are usually experienced in isolation.
