Maps & Legends: New Paintings and Assemblage by Lisa Creed

Maps & Legends: New Paintings and Assemblage by Lisa Creed
August 25 – September 26, 2021 (open Fridays and Saturdays, noon-6ish)
Reception: Saturday, Sept. 11; 4–6pm

Lisa Creed’s work explores a wide range of styles and textures, always rooted in, and returning to, abstraction. During this pandemic, she has become fascinated with the lines that connect us to people and places —or disconnect us.

On her daily walks she photographs the telephone lines that crisscross the sky and allow us to speak to each other. Once she would have tried to avoid these interruptions of nature but now she craves them, symbols of an end to isolation. These lines appear in Creed’s work with bold intention, creating maps that lead to those she knows and loves as well as to places she has missed during this shutdown of our world. Creed is also mapping her inner being as she continues pushing the boundaries of paint, pencil, and fragments of paper on a surface, working to make sense of who she is in these uncertain times.

Lisa’s works have been purchased by major collectors and institutions for decades including the five star Blackberry Farm Hotel in Tennessee, Duke Hospital and the Duke University President’s home and the Office of the Provost, and the Ritz Carlton in DC, amongst many others.
