“Lost inside the great swell, we seek our point of equilibrium.
Sometimes it is the space between that offers us the greatest gifts.” - Lisa Kagan

A Collection of Narrative Images

In exploration of the “the space between,” this collection of featured images highlight original art from Lisa Kagan’s personal body of creative work. Lisa has created these narrative images, combining acrylic painting and photography, as a way to explore her own life stories and the creative potential inherent in life’s liminal spaces. Many of these images also appear as illustrations paired with Lisa’s poetry in her illustrated book Emergence, Poetry and Art by Lisa Kagan. Selected images from the work shown here will also be featured in Lisa’s next illustrated book, the Art of Motherhood Anthology, which is currently underway. This anthology is a collection of art and writing by mother artists and writers from around the country exploring themes central to the early years of motherhood.
