Lisa Kellner In The Studio

"Teetering between the real and the abstract, my paintings explore the nature of micro and macrocosms. The objective here is to build within each work an ‘environment’; a vista formed on the basis of a synergy of contrasts embedded with human perceptions."

More About Lisa Kellner

IconInspires

What inspires you?

I am inspired by the untouched natural world and the lessons I have learned by existing in close proximity to nature. I am also inspired by the human proclivity to thrive no matter what.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

In the studio, I begin with the crevasse; the point where things come together and fall apart. It is in these deep recesses of space that new beginnings are possible and old outcomes find a home. From here, I am left to my own devices, developing painting surfaces that exist in the realm of possibility and closure.
