Art In America

Lisi Raskin

at Churner and Churner,
205 Tenth Ave.

A quick look at the "field research" section of Lisi Raskin's website reveals travels to Afghanistan, Lithuania, Bosnia, Sweden, Germany and the American West, where the Brooklyn-based artist has investigated topics ranging from Cold War architecture to utopian mythology. The work in "Mutual Immanence" comes out of her trip to Afghanistan last year. Raskin's abstract painted wood-and-paper wall sculptures—some the size of postage stamps, others a couple of feet wide—resemble the fragmented surface of cracked earth or a bird's-eye view of a fractured, war-torn country.
