20 inches by 24 inches, collage, framed with salvaged barn wood. Created from bits of torn paper adhered over an acrylic under-painting on wood panel; finished with two coats of UV protective varnish and framed without glass in order to showcase the wonderful texture created from the many layers of thick and thin papers.
Liza Lou created this beaded kitchen in 1996. It was her first such piece of art; she has done other, increasingly elaborate ( works, including a backyard with 250,000 individually-beaded blades of grass. Each of the beads in her elaboratelly detailed works of art is applied with tweezers. American-born Liza Lou now lives in South Africa. In 2002 she was awarded a MacArthur Genius grant.
