Lisa VanderHill
The creative juices flowed early in Lisa's life, and she started with "art projects" at an early age. In her 20's she worked for 8 years as a decorative artist for la Barge Mirrors, painting oriental inspired scenes on mirror frames. She also managed an artists' coop gallery and operated a picture framing shop. Lisa turned to fine art as a full time career in her 30's, and has not stopped. She explored sculpture, photography and printmaking, but always gravitated back to painting. Two particular things began to inform her work. Sculpture and Fabric. When studying at Parsons School of Design in Paris France, Lisa experimented with different painting surfaces - wood, metal, slate tile, and fabric scraps that had been discarded by the Parisian fashion design students. She discovered that painting on ornately printed fabric opened up a whole new world. Lisa's travels throughout Europe ignited a love for the figurative sculptures that are so prolifically displayed in public gardens, city squares, and building entrances. She focused on the human form and classical sculpture. Vanderhill saw movement and expression captured in stone, terra cotta, and bronze. These very un-fluid mediums became fluid under the sculptors hand and the forms flow and dance. Lisa captures those qualities and translates them onto her canvases. Lisa generates that fluid energy in the early stages of her paintings, before the figures appear. She uses broad sweeping washes in acrylic and charcoal on the fabric. Her approach to the figure is quite classical. She starts with a monochromatic imprimatura and then slowly layers the oils to model the bodies. She incorporates the printed fabric and washes into both the foreground and the background to create her own very contemporary twist.
