About Lisa Lipsett’s Art
Lisa Lipsett is a West Coast abstract painter who has established a signature natural expressionistic style. Her paintings bubble with often decadent joyful vitality and are a hopeful and thought provoking response to dark times. She takes inspiration from traces of the long hand of time in weathered layers of ochre on ancient stone walls animated by crisp golden light play. Human-nature dynamics in her series, “Utterances of Sunlight and Water” are revealed with ciphers encoding the elements juxtaposed with spontaneous wild form.
For her, the drive to create is fuelled by a longing for balanced knowing and shared dialogue with nature through visceral engagement, improvisation and impersonation. Using oil, raw earth pigment, acrylic, ink, gouache, watercolour, photo transfer stabilized with cold wax affords maximum material freedom. Rose quartz suede, powdery baby blue and decadent Venetian gold bow to renaissance cultural sensibilities with natural pattern, shadow, stone texture, forest sounds, and watery movement remaining a timeless constant. Painting is a way to experience and give expression to nature’s enduring presence in our lives. Painting delivers first hand experience of the within of things. Painting brings the often unseen, into focus. Read more.
