Lisa Lorenz, Montreal, Quebec Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement Lisa (Lariviere), Lorenz was born in Montreal, Canada and has been drawing and painting exuberantly since childhood and her talent expands over many years. After living overseas for over 14 years, she has recently moved back to her native Canada.
While living overseas, she traveled extensively and her travels opened her eyes to many interesting and memorable places that words alone can not express. Many of her paintings are often based on her travels through Europe and Asia. Painting her impressions is her way of remembering and sharing such colorful memories.
Lisa is an artist who uses a radiant palette to create her colourful and stylized paintings. Her work is characterized by joyful compositions, exaggerated perspectives and her strikingly effective use of colours and pattern. You will also discover the interesting use of the "cloisonnism” technique in her compositions where she outlines her shapes and design with a bold contour emphasizing her artwork. Her playful, lively, vivid compositions all evoke in us a sense of happiness and a smile. Her paintings are consistently fun to look at and are guaranteed to brighten up your day.
