Committed to painting from life outside the confines of a studio space. Lisa Baldwin captures moments directly experienced in nature. An avid outdoors woman, she travels with her paints into the wilderness in search of details in nature often unseen by others. Rendered feverishly with bold strokes of oil paint her images are created using an unrestricted palate compressing a wild subject into its essentials and yet includes every detail worth recording to capture as well the emotional value of the subject.
Baldwin's abstraction verging arrangements operate in the space between movement and tranquility producing a slippage between image and place achieving genuine expression.
Lisa Baldwin is an alumni of Saskatchewan's legendary art retreat at Emma Lake and has been exhibited internationally. Her work is in private collections across Canada and in the United States, Belgium and Hungry.
