Sydney based pencil artist Lisa Lapointe, draws upon spiritual, religious and indigenous mythology in her art. There is also an obvious connection with the primitive, but the colours are if anything futuristic. What interests her also are the undercurrents of human emotion – the energy of a situation found in an action or a comment, or even a song. Every moment and place, every person and sentiment, are transformed into a visual language. The shapes are the words and the colours are the emotion.
Lisa Lapointe completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at CoFA, UNSW. She lives in Sydney, Australia.
