About Lisa Sanditz
Lisa Sanditz’s paintings obsess over peculiar features in the post-industrial American landscape such as circular farms and shopping malls and trees halved by power lines. She zeroes in on wayward sites and events that epitomize environmental and cultural miss-steps, strange overlaps of nature and commerce, convergences that arise from opportunism, tourism, waste, scarcity and nostalgia. Her free-ranging commentary commentaries may be read as cautionary tales, but they enable a formal exploration that is clearly whimsical, sensual, humorous and celebratory. Her paint vocabulary is lush and vivid, brimming with eccentric flourishes and multi-colored blends.
