Exhibition Description

Interest in ancestry and new technologies in ceramics have become major influences in Lisa Lockman’s current work. The title of this show, Misplaced, comes from testimony of her third great grandmother Mary Ann Bennington, attempting to prove her marriage to her husband Stephen O. Lockman after his death, so she could receive the widow’s pension owed her. When she misplaced her marriage certificate, she inadvertnetly misplaced her identity. The wall mural titled Elisabetha is named for one of her seventh great grandmothers. She is one of 128 grandmothers in that entire generation on her paternal side. Of the 128, Lisa has only been able to identify seven names. The complexity of ancestry, when we include our maternal lines, is what inspires these pieces. The forms originated from vessel designs made in Maya modeling software intended to be 3D printed in ceramic. The 3D virtual objects were positioned to be viewed from above or below, flattening the form into a 2D pattern. Using a laser, those patterns were etched into press molds to create a surface relief.
