Lisa A. Bartolozzi


Man: Wisdom Series, 1997, oil on panel, 52.25"x49.75"
My work grows from feelings to thoughts on the role of man within his own existence - both his spiritual and natural existence. Thoughts transform into figurations designed for meditation and beauty. The human form, naked and real with all its strengths and weaknesses, is a bridge of empathy to the viewer. The luminous optics of oil paint, molten beeswax and the construction of two and three dimensional wooden panel supports are my artistic tools of experimentation.
