Errata Slip Milksnakes: New Works by Lisa Brawn

by Kait Kucy · 0 comments

The mysterious and wonderful woodcutter of iconic faces, birds and cult figures is back. Lisa Brawn, celebrated Calgary artist debuts new works under the title of Errata Slip Milksnakes at Art Central’s Axis Contemporary Art Gallery.

The new woodcuts include poppy gloss enamel signs and portraits along with a continuation of Brawn’s wild bird series which are created using salvaged Birch and Douglas Fir pieces. 

The show runs from October 18 until November 9 – plenty of time to get in there to check out these graphic eyeball-pleasing wooden marvels. My favourite? I can’t get enough of the letterpress look of her latest text-based woodcuts. The old school typography paired with the brightly coloured portraits (Little Jean is my fave) makes huge waves of nostalgia sweep over me.
