Workshop Artist at Firesign: Lisa Birke

Firesign is delighted to welcome Lisa Birke to Quadra Island May 23-27 2011 to teach

Lisa Birke is a Vancouver artist working primarily in painting, installation and performance art. Since graduating from Emily Carr Institute (BFA 1999), Lisa has had public and commercial solo exhibitions in Canada, the US, and the Netherlands. Using black humour as a backdrop, her work is an eclectic mix of mass media, pop culture and kitsch imagery. It references art history and makes observations about consumerism, human impact on the environment, biological manipulation, social stereotyping, and how technology is changing identity and meaning in the contemporary world. Lisa has been an arts educator for ten years and has given numerous lectures on her work, travels and creative process.
