Lisa Ridgers was born in Shoreham in 1968 and is an internationally established artist who has been living in the USA for the past 20 years. She has recently returned to the South Coast to bring her unique brand of artwork to Europe and looks to Brighton as the place to allow her creativity to run free.
Lisa began painting professionally in 2000 in Phoenix, Arizona, under the tutelage of two prominent contemporary artists, and has continued on as a primarily self-taught artist, developing her own unique methods and processes for her paintings. She finds that the rich colours and drastic scenery of the Sonoran desert influence her work still; yet now, finds a harmonious balance brought about by her new surroundings near the sea.
Says Lisa: “My passion for the diversity found in nature, combined with a personal quest for balance and serenity, inspires my work. My goal is to fuse these elements together with a contemporary twist so that the viewer is invited to take a journey that is not only a visual experience, but also an intimate, emotional contemplation.”
Her work, predominantly acrylic accented with a range of mediums and techniques, has been described as ‘a fusion of organic palette, natural elements and inner meditations’. The contradictory nature of her process creates a complementary and uniquely fresh look at subject matter ranging from bold, minimalist representations to vivid and earthy abstracted landscapes.
“I prefer to work spontaneously, drawing inspiration from many sources, including my love of the outdoors and travelling. Also, the process of the work itself; which, by its very nature, can often produce unexpected and delightful results.”
Lisa’s original works are collected internationally by private and corporate collectors and have also been seen on various US television programmes and advertisements including The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men. Her work is published internationally by Third and Wall Art Group, based in Seattle, and she is excited to now be able to offer her work more extensively in Europe to the public and the trade. More information regarding representation can be found on her websites (see index page 151).
