Lisa Call’s Reflections On Cape Palliser

A talented textile artist

By Kate Hartmann

Lisa Call, an award-winning American born artist now based here in Waikanae Beach, currently has this impressive 5 panel piece available at Tutere Gallery and Creative Space.

Lisa is predominantly a textile artist who paints with fabric and creates design by drawing with thread.

This particular piece “Falling in Love – Cape Palliser” was inspired by one of her very first Kiwi adventures, a 4WD getaway to Cape Palliser where she was struck by the beauty of the landscape. 

Capturing colour and mood

She has captured the colour and mood of the region perfectly with subtle harmonious use of colour (which she dyes herself) and in the design and piece work displayed in each panel which reflects a particular aspect/memory of her journey there.

Once the design has been worked out, Lisa then stitches each segment directly onto a quality canvas stretcher for ease of display.

Each panel, five in total, has its own title, in order from left to right: “Approach”, “River Bed”, “Sea”, “Moonscape”, “Dawn”.
