Artists | Lisa Pressman

Lisa Pressman
Lisa Pressman's work focuses on a visual synthesis of stored and personal memory. Photos captured during her recent travels by train, car and air are the impetus for this series. Visual mapping links the notions of time, travel, location and place. The paint’s translucency and opacity allow the viewer to follow her often non-linear journeys. She was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1958. Lisa earned her BA in Art from Douglass College, Rutgers University and her MFA from Bard College.

Lisa’s paintings have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the USA and internationally including The Hunderton Art Museum, Clinton, NJ, Butters Gallery, Portland, OR, Susan Eley Fine Arts, NY, NY, Causey Contemporary, NY, NY, The Curator Gallery, NY, NY, Thomas Deans Gallery, Atlanta, GA, Telluride Gallery of Art,Telluride, Colorado, Palazzo Dell’Annunziata, Matera, Italy and Jen Tough Gallery in Vallejo, CA. She will be exhibiting at the Mulvane Art Museum, Topeka, Kansas in April of 2019.

Lisa is a core instructor for R&F Handmade Paints in Kingston, NY and a workshop instructor for Gamblin Artists Colors. She is an annual presenter and instructor at the International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, MA. Lisa teaches workshops in both encaustic and oil and cold wax mediums throughout the U.S; including Penland School of Arts and Crafts, Pratt Institute, Pacific Northwest College of Art, Arrowmont School of Art and Crafts and more.
