Point of Departure


Point of Departure 48 x 48 oil and wax LPressman


My favorite time of the exhibition process is after the show is hung and before the official opening. The stress, worry, and obsessive nit picking is (mostly) over. I can spend some time with the work as it lives outside of the studio.

And, the studio is almost empty!!

Your work looks fabulous, Lisa! I really like your new approach of making more "figures" in the ground and the nicely integrated color. That big one, Point of Departure, is quite an accomplishment. Congratulations! It's always so rewarding to see your work hung in that nice, clean gallery space. Good on you.

Congratulations on your upcoming show! The photos are great, the lighting seems perfect and your work looks so so good. I like the mixture of sizes and the large one is a stand out. Best of fun and celebration on the 15th!

Oh my Lisa, it all looks incredible hung together. I think my choice would be the two hung one above the other - probably. So much light, space and white wall showing; it all looks very professional. Fabulous.

Hi Lisa,

I came across your blog (having been a student of Joanne Mattera/following her blog) and wanted to say what wonderful work! I am especially interested in your most recent work.
