“Surround yourself ” – As I surround myself with this body of work and the memories of time spent traveling, I am reminded at how important it is to stay as long as I can in the landscape.
This body of work captures the connection I have with the being in those places. The colors are often represent a feeling that was there, or an experience shared. It is here that I am shaped and sharpened to see with my eyes wide open.
Inspired by the dramatic landscapes encountered in her diverse travels, painter Jerri Lisk never leaves home without her sketch book in hand. Back in her studio, Lisk interprets her line drawings into paintings of vibrant color which combine the unique surface of sanded aluminum and a selectively naïve style to skillfully convey the raw, yet seductive, innocence of nature. For the finishing touch she creates a tromp l’oeil by allowing her compositions to float within a border of aluminum, the roughened texture of which suggests a separate metal frame. As vibrant and alluring as her medium is original, the paintings of Jerri Lisk leave a lasting impression on all who view them.
