Lisa Pressman Biography

Lisa Pressman creates paintings that draw from the place of “not knowing” and exploration. Her work reveals images that many people have lost sight of, images that communicate to a place deeper than words. The paintings invite a deep, visceral response that evolves over time; they have a life of their own. She says that one of her strongest childhood memories  was lying in bed trying to fall asleep, staring at the wall and creating a grid and imagine images in each square of moving light and color. Thus abstraction is a part of her very being.

Lisa’s paintings, which reference Clyfford Stiles, Barnett Newman and other 20th century American abstractionist have been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout the USA and internationally.

In addition to exhibiting her own oil or encaustic paintings, Lisa is a core instructor for R&F Handmade Paints in Kingston, NY and a workshop instructor for Gamblin Artists Colors and conducts encaustic workshops throughout the U.S. A. Lisa currently lives and works in West Orange, New Jersey.


Lisa Pressman Statement

My work is an ongoing exploration of both inside and outside worlds My work explores the place of not knowing. The process is an intuitive dialogue between the random and the deliberate that allows a relationship to develop between intent and accident. Each piece evolves as a play between translucent and opaque layers of paint, as I draw, layer, cover up, sand and scrape. The paintings take on a life of their own, revealing imagery that evokes a visceral response. The Inside Mattersseries is an ongoing exploration of vessels, their interior and exterior contents. The contents of the vessels remain hidden, imbuing them with a mysterious, suggestive potency, like the painting process itself.
