The distinctive figurative sculpture by Lisa Clague hovers between fantasy and reality – playful, mysterious, contemplative. “My work evokes a place between the subconscious and the intangible,” she notes. “My masked figures are hybrid creatures, mistresses of ambiguity and disguise, of seduction and deception. These images, like dreams, are familiar but illusive.
The figures are rendered in white-ware and then treated with stains, oxides and wax. Metal, glass and/or wood are added components to complete the sculpture.
Clague received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Cleveland Institute of Art and her Master of Fine Art degree from California College of Arts and Crafts.
