24HR Psychic presents Lift-Face by Lisa Solberg. The show features three painted works in a custom venue, which reflect on the theme of complications in self-identification.
Lift-Face is a play on facelift. Solberg captures the moment when you stand in front of a mirror, either in the depths of depression or a manic high, and ask yourself, "am I crazy? Do I need a shrink or dermatologist?" The works beckon one to look and face oneself.
The silver reflective paintings recall LA’s Finish Fetish movement of the 1960s, Rorschach and studies of schizophrenia. What will the mirrored surfaces reflect back on the viewer? In Solberg’s study of the psyche, the eye of the tornado is awareness and acceptance of the self when everything else is violently spinning.
