“Intimacy” is the title of Lisette’s latest collection of artworks scheduled for exhibition in the year 2020. The collection consists of both existing works selected for their particularly apt portrayals of intimacy; as well as new works created to express the artist’s understanding of the concept of intimacy. This understanding, both innate and socially constructed, is explored within this collection.
Intimacy manifest itself in an endless variety of intra-personal and interpersonal relationships. Be it the unconditional love a mother has for her child, the companionship between man and his pet, classic romantic love, or the self-love we all hope to both attain and retain. For how can we love others if we know not yet how to love ourselves. Love thyself, and be loved.
