Art Fart : Liza Lou

This morning I was sewing in my studio and listening to This American Life 24/7 channel. They were featuring an episode on obsession and the life and work of Liza Lou was act 3. She is a woman from New York obsessed with covering everything in beads.  I was immediately sucked in and had to google her work. The photo above is her kitchen, of after 5 years of meticulous beading.  Her latest exhibition is on its way to the Wichita Museum Of Art In Wichita, Kansas
Her next project after the kitchen in 1998 was titled "Backyard" which consisted of beading millions of blades of grass, this lawnmower and a complete picnic scene.
