Mixed media buttonwork by Lisa Kokin. States the artist: "My work has always had an obsessive quality, and this body of work is no exception. Buttons have made cameo appearances in much of my previous work; never have they been the primary material until recently. Every button is stitched to its neighbor to form a low-tech pixilated composition. Up close each piece is an abstract mélange of colors and shapes; the further back one stands the more decipherable the image becomes. This interplay between abstraction and representation is a source of interest to me. It is as though I am painting with buttons, building my palette as I go along. adding and subtracting until the interplay of colors and forms coalesces into a coherent image."
