About Tacoma Artist, Lisa Daniel

Tacoma Artist Lisa Daniel - Artist Statement

My paintings are organically abstract. I work with color, transparency, depth, and texture. I pour, direct and manipulate multiple layers of thin acrylic paint, gels, paper, and other mixed media.

As an abstract artist, painting is a very physical process for me-I like to see the paint react to different situations and conditions. I distort the paint by adding large amounts of water, and additives like gels, flow release, glass beads, etc.

Every pour is risky. Covering a layer or a partial layer and revealing something better.

When looking at my paintings, I want the viewer to walk away with their own idea of what they saw or felt. To truly look requires a certain amount of openness. As an abstract art artist, my intent for the paintings isn't always what other people see. That’s ok. If the viewer really looks at the color texture, depth composition, or anything in the painting and feels something, then it’s successful.
