About Lisa Burkl

I am a glass artist, visiting lecturer and community art facilitator. My personal creative inspiration comes from symbolism, iconography, colour, light, reflection and projection. I use common imagery and abstraction to bring a poetic expression to my artwork, it also provides the opportunity to deliver ideas, qualities and emotion on multiple levels. I qualified in Architectural Glass in 1991, I have worked on projects in universities, schools, private studios, art galleries and community venues. I am a qualified teacher and my experience covers a wide range of art forms, such as painting and drawing, design, textiles and architectural glass arts.

A Sense of Space

Building on previous successful collabaoration, this was a partnership project with Mission Gallery and the homeless charity Crisis. The project responded to a Crisis 2016 report, ‘I was all on my own’ ; experience of lonelinress and isolation amongst homeless people.

‘Loneliness is one of the biggest health challenges our country faces. It can affect anyone at any time and its impact is in line with smoking or obesity. But we can only begin to help one another if we feel able to understand, recognise and talk about it.’

Minister for Loneliness Mims Davies 

Over four sessions we explored different decorative glass techniques, using the theme of stepping out of the margins and healing ‘loneliness’ as inspiration for our creativity.

 

We then brought these differing glass elements together to create one large glass tapestry.

A tapestry symbolises life and represents diversity coming together as one.  It signifies how each of us is a part of ‘life’s rich tapestry’ and denotes the various patterns in which we live coming together and weaving a picture together. We need each other.
