Lisa Crafts

First Name: 

The work of Lisa Crafts is characterized by richly rendered imagery and a quietly quirky sensibility. Her independent animated films have ranged from a meditation on the role creativity plays in the survival of the human spirit, to a funky romp through the land of human sexuality. These works have been shown in Europe, Japan, and throughout North America. Her commissioned animations include pieces created for music television, Sesame Street, American Movie Classics, as well as titles and animation for documentaries by Michel Negroponte and Cindy Kleine. In addition to animated films, Crafts also paints quietly disturbing psychological landscapes which capture the dreamlike dissonance of the American roadside. They have been exhibited at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in L.A., and Cavin-Morris Gallery in New York City.
