LAS HERMANAS IGLESIAS IS THE PROJECT-BASED COLLABORATION OF 
OF LISA + JANELLE IGLESIAS. 
THE SISTERS ALSO PURSUE DISTINCT INDIVIDUAL PRACTICES
GROUNDED IN DRAWING + SCULPTURE.  
SOMETIMES THEY OVERLAP THEIR STUDIOS, EXHIBITING AS 
LISA + JANELLE.  

LAS HERMANAS speaks to our identity as woven into histories and philosophies of feminism and collaboration. As the children of Norwegian and Dominican immigrants who grew up in Queens, New York City, our project-based, trans-disciplinary work explores issues of hybridity, social participation and cultural fusion. Through employing playful structures that respond to the community and geographical context of each project, Las Hermanas create artworks that disrupt borders, engage absurdity, and promote the benefits of working together. 
 
CURRENTLY:
LISA is an Assistant Professor of Drawing & Painting at the University of Florida and mother to a small human. Her work explores expansive histories and potentials of drawing and takes into consideration the translation of patterns, images and gestures across mediums. Like a snowbird, she returns to NYC for the summer months. Currently Lisa is spending her research year in the Dominican Republic (Fall) and Scandinavia (Winter/Spring).

JANELLE recently relocated her studio to Southern California but often works on site-repsonsive projects in other places. Her work is invested in the metaphors found in objects/materials and their physical language in space. She uses Sculpture to access other ways of knowing. Since returning from a birding expedition in the rainforests of West Papua (a research trip funded by the Jerome Foundation) she has been (& will forever will be) digesting that experience.


LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE, THIS SITE IS CONSTANTLY IN FLUX.
PLEASE VISIT AGAIN SOON OR CONTACT LISA + JANELLE FOR MORE INFO.
