Art Up Close: Contemporary Paintings by Lisa Breslow

Kathryn Markel discusses how light brings life to paintings
April 26, 2020

These are two very different paintings by Lisa Breslow, but the style is indelible. Her paintings combine a sharpness from using a palette knife and pencil lines that create a geometry, and a softness from the way she uses space and air in her paintings. The most important thing to me in her work is the light. A Lisa Breslow painting always has air and light that brings life to her paintings.
