Lisa Christensen: Still Wild

17 November

December 5, 2023

Lethbridge Gallery

Lisa’s paintings have evolved out of a “love for detail, colour and form, and the desire to convey something otherworldly with humble everyday objects”.

Extending on the rich history of still-life painting, Lisa is influenced by the Dutch and Spanish still-life paintings of the 17th century, that focused on themes of mortality through the depiction of flowers, fruits and other domestic objects that stand as reminders of impermanence in this life.
