Lisa Fellerson’s paintings provoke an interplay and tension between line, shape, and color. With no preconceived idea in mind, she begins by dripping, scrapping, and gouging acrylic paint on a two dimensional surface. Physicality takes over, leading itself into a kind of chaotic disorder. Through this disorder and imbalance, somehow the painting begins to settle itself. Bold shapes rest themselves against almost stick like lines. The fluid drips embrace the constraints of the canvas. Eventually, a balance of the roughness and the softer elements begins to emerge.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, she graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater with a B.F.A in Painting in 1992, and went on to study painting and Catalan culture at the Escola Massana Centre d'Art i Disseny in Barcelona, Spain in 1993. In 1995, she lived and worked in central Mexico for a period of time to study painting and photography at the Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. In 1999, she returned to Mexico to live and work in Oaxaca. In 2000, she moved to New York City where she currently resides.
