BioBorn in Canada in 1970, Lisa Carney is an abstract painter from the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec. Living and working today in Ste-Anne-Des-Plaines, the artist is a member of several arts organizations such as the Conseil de la Culture of the Laurentians and the Regroupement des Artistes en arts visuels du Québec.
Growing up in a family of artists, Lisa Carney has been involved in a world of creation since a very young age. Graduate in visual arts at the University of Quebec in Montreal, she is distinguished by a perfect mastery of different techniques in various mediums. Expressing herself as well through visual art as music, she has devoted herself fully to abstract painting in recent years.
Lisa Carney’s artistic research is inspired by her love for our planet. If she admits to being heavily influenced by the landscapes of her childhood, the artist wants to move away from the conventional landscape and plunge the viewer into an unusual world. She paints in acrylic with an energizing color palette, and uses the dripping technique, creating a harmony between textures and colors to suggest plant life.
Lisa Carney has exhibited extensively in Canada, the United States and France. Her works are among many private and corporate collections, including the Thérèse-De-Blainville Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Her work has been the subject of numerous publications and books, and has been rewarded several times.
Art StatementWorking by intuition, relying on instinct, my process involves developing several paintings at a time, allowing me to explore many ideas that I divide by themes in series. I paint mostly with acrylic on canvas, naturally making unconscious decisions about what colors to use and how I will blend them to my satisfaction.
Because I am a very much grounded person close to nature, one can find in my work, textures that resemble roots, splashes that are reminiscent of wild flowered fields and colored scrapes that suggest mineral veins.
