Artist Profile: Lisa Mee
L I S A M E E
I am captivated by the rhythms and colors found in nature whether it be the complex layering of a color-saturated sunset or the light-filled reflections from bodies of water. I am inspired by botanicals and various formations of stone and wood. I recreate a compendium of these natural forms as well as the expansionof space and light. My paintings capture nature’s blooming by using recycled materials in an aesthetic way.
I integrate papers, fabrics and metals into my paintings by careful sorting, cutting and assembling. With these materials, I recycle them into works of art. Once mundane scraps are combined to create a mystique all their own. A whole new palette of colors and shapes emerge and allow me to extend my imagination beyond the boundaries of only paint.
These artworks illustrate my commitment to express environmental concerns about the fragile ecological state of our planet by demonstrating how to reuse and recycle in a creative way. This is my way of making a difference. At the same time I hope to share a positive message about beauty that can simply be from the experience of appreciating art.
