About the Artist
Artist's Statement by Lisa Purcell
Instead of trying to reproduce exactly what I have before my eyes, I use color in an abstract way to express myself forcibly. I use colors that are exaggerated, more energetic, more expressive than those I actually"see"in my subject. I also greatly simplify the shapes and forms of the objects I am painting - bringing out only what is essential, integral to my subject. Additionally, I have begun to experiment with how pigments interact with each other, begun to use various medias together - sometimes in unconventional ways.
Painting in Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Gouache, Pastels, Egg Tempera, and Mixed Media. Creating Found Art/Construction Sculptures and Mobiles using: Found Items, Odd Bits, Natural Ephemera and Recycled Objects.
