About Lisa D'Amico, MFA, PhD
Every new painting is a deep breath. A new beginning to tell a story using color and creativity.
A single mark or line on a blank surface provides a starting point for an intuitive exploration of the visual language. Whether it's the way the light falls on a face or the subtle patterns in nature, Lisa D'Amico captures the smallest details. Using her mastery of drawing and painting with resin, D'Amico's techniques communicate the depth and complexities of each subject as a small and present part of a greater story. I represent myself as an alchemist of images and a catalyst for daydreams and desires. In both my art and photography I keep my eye trained on the lines of the face and nature, allowing for the formation of personal marks and lines within the paintings. I explore color relationships in my work and use diverse materials ranging from oil, acrylic, oil crayon, construction materials and fabric applied to canvas, linen, boards, and paper. I paint with brushes, palette knives and my hands and fingers.
