LISA MACDONALD

ARTIST STATEMENT

Contemporary artist Lisa MacDonald’s paintings permeate the boundaries between containment, fragmentation and release. Her work interrogates what it means to shore oneself up, excavating harsh truths about who or what we need to find calm amidst chaos. The artist invites but also subverts references to story, home and family life in an attempt to question our constant search for comfort both in our bodies, our places and in our dwellings. Her work positions the act of painting as world-building, with each canvas concealing and revealing itself in equal measure. Currently preoccupied with the motif of glass bottles and vases, MacDonald’s work simultaneously inhabits the micro and the macro – as it oscillates between pain and pleasure, the familiar and the unknown, entrapment or escape.
