Throughout her work, the human body – the figure – is the main element which Lisa Salamandra manipulates and transforms (transfigures); she uses the figure symbolically and metaphorically. Her visual research centers upon the way in which the figure comes into being, its makeup and construction. Within this framework, she most often expresses herself through the female figure, erotic in nature. Her current studio work naturally divides itself amongst the more than a half a dozen series in progress, some began over ten years ago.
