Lisa Taliano is an New York City-based artist who has exhibited her paintings in the US and abroad. Her paintings are an investigation into the ecological condition that recognizes bodies and places as continuous. In her paintings, Taliano explores the porous nature of bodies and the wider environment through the tension between abstraction and representation by means of affect and performativity.
The paintings in her exhibition “Material Entanglements: Bodies and Borders” are a physical means to grapple with a theoretical shift in the conception of materiality that requires us to rethink our understanding of what it is to have a body. They are engendered by a way of thinking and feeling that recognizes embodied beings as enmeshed in the material world in such a way that we can’t separate ourselves from it.

The Material Entanglements: Bodies and Borders exhibit runs September 7–October 20 at The Miller Gallery at the Republic Building, 333 Second Street, Columbus, Indiana. Hours are Mon.–Fri., 9am–5pm.
