Exploring materiality in service of beauty
About Lisa Scadron

I grew up immersed in Southern Arizona's beautiful Sonoran Desert landscape. The influence of that desert's color and vastness, combined with my early travels around the world, helped me understand that I innately visualize my surroundings, natural or man-made, in terms of shapes, colors and compositions.

Exploring materiality in service of beauty, I configure multiple layers of textures, vivid colors, and iridescent materials into abstract paintings that are at once ethereal and earthy, expressing my visceral connection to the landscapes of the Southwest and the scapes in my mind. My prints originate from sections of my paintings that I digitally transform.

My creative process is an antidote to my tendency to overthink, as the act of making forces me to be present, favoring what feels right in that instant, instead of insisting on preconceived images and ideas. I follow “mistakes” and “tangents,” using them to navigate the unknown territory of a work in progress. When I play with materials and trust the process, beauty coalesces from the layers of media.
