Lisa Pressman believes her paintings embody a visual synthesis of stored memory - a metaphorical representation of the passage between human vibrancy and entropy. Causey Contemporary located at 29 Orchard St. in Manhattan’s lower east side will present a exhibition entitled Passing Through featuring Ms. Pressman’s oil and encaustic paintings to the public from November 12 - December 13, 2015. The exhibition will mark Lisa’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.
The public is invited to join Ms. Pressman and gallery director, Tracy Causey-Jeffery at an opening reception on Friday, Nov. 13th from 6 - 8 p.m. - an appropriate choice of date for an exhibition that in Ms. Pressman’s words “ sees to realize a direction connection between travel, observing the transience of images and time and the passing of my 99 year old mom. The last week of her life she kept saying there is the train, there is the bus,….a riverboat. The imagery abstracted, modes of transport frozen in time and space.”
Lisa is a core instructor for R&F Handmade Paints in Kingston, NY and a workshop instructor for Gamblin Artists Colors. She is an annual presenter and instructor at the International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, MA and teaches workshops in both encaustic and oil and cold wax mediums throughout the U.S.
Lisa currently lives and works in West Orange, New Jersey.
