" I am a painter of landscapes. In my work, painting and landscape are conceptual in nature and experimental in process. I am fascinated with the landscape. Show me a craggy, decaying space wrought with history and meaning, and I will explore it, both on foot and in my work. I feel an urgency to immerse myself in these places before they are totally gone. The landscape can also be an intangible space. Ethereal in nature, this type of landscape fills the mind with memories and thoughts acquired from living. My paintings focus on activating a landscape of memory and how it portrays a certain person or place. As a painter, there is nothing more satisfying than the smell and feel of paint, and dealing with the elusive white canvas. Yet, I enjoy challenging the notion of what a painting can be and how we participate as viewers. I paint in both two and three dimensions, and use a variety of methods and mediums, in order to capture that moment when opposing elements converge. By merging these disparate components, my challenge is to distill experiential space to its very essence, and discover the silent place." - Lisa Kellner
