MIXED MEDIA PAINTINGS INSPIRED BY NATURE
Lisa Lipsett is a Canadian mixed media artist who has been painting for over 20 years. Her art muse is nature- her patterns, reflected light, shadows and watery movement. She paints in oil, raw earth pigment, acrylic, ink, gouache, watercolour, photo transfer and wax and is a no 'holds barred artist', who loves to experiment and discover. She is president of the Salt Spring Gallery of Fine Art, an artist owned and managed fine art collective.
In Lisa's words:
'My world burst open the day I painted the way a vase of tulips feels instead of the way it looks. That was nearly 20 years ago and I am happy to say that painting still provokes the same thrill.
I am a nature-taught artist who learned to paint through intuition and observation.
In the series 'Ancient Light' I began with long exposure light paintings of crystallized artifacts in a Mayan cave. Then in the digital darkroom, I transformed these swirly images into mandalas. These images awaken a timeless communion with the past, provide space for reflection and inspire the remembrance of an ancient world interwoven with the present day. For the 'Elemental Mandalas' series I transformed original fine art paintings with digital studio kaleidoscopic magic.'
