Lisa Solomon is profoundly interested in the idea of hybridization and her works revolve thematically around domesticity, craft and masculinity/femininity. In her view, in this digital age, using ‘antiquated’ materials and techniques such as embroidery is, in fact, subversive. Solomon’s work is in dialogue with contemporary art and the history of painting, but by using thread and craft materials she feels that she is simultaneously in conversation with an aesthetic artistic sphere that is inherently more interior and domestic. As a half Japanese, half Jewish [Eastern European] Caucasian woman, hybridization shows itself often in her practice. Influenced by her paternal grandmother, she often chooses to incorporate crochet, embroidery, felt, pins, etc. The history and connotations of these materials intrinsically add another dimension. For Lisa Solomon, it is a labor of love, in many different ways.
