Artist Statement

In Lisa Greenfield’s paintings, subtle shifts in colors are mixed and combined with cold wax to create a thick, velvety medium that is applied to the surface by palette knife. There are multiple layers being manipulated, scratched, covered, masked and revealed. There is a push-pull between foreground and background. Angles and lines are protruding and receding, sometimes indistinguishably blurred, creating a scuffed geometric landscape that invites the viewer in for a closer look.  Her most recent work has been influenced by the light and shadows playing out on paper, as seen in the paper airplanes and origami constantly being constructed by the artist’s 9-year old son.
