Artist Statement:

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 canvas. Eventually, a balance of the roughness and the softer elements begins to emerge.
