About the Artist
For almost two decades, Lisa Sloane has been keenly absorbed in a quiet, passionate engagement with the natural places she loves. A versatile artist who paints in encaustic wax, acrylic, oil and watercolor, she has also explored a number of other graphic media, including etching, monoprinting, and draws with both dry pastel, oil pastel and charcoal. Sloane’s extensive range of subject matter includes landscapes, cityscapes and figurative imagery.
Sloane’s work contains a specificity of place with a greater concern for representing the moods of shifting times of day, changing seasons and the respondent quality of light. Nonverbal feelings are expressed about the natural world around her with a painterly, spontaneous, handling of the medium and a distilled representation of subject. Sloane has a great deal of empathy with nature and a rapport with the landscapes she draws. Tranquility and stillness pervade the images and particular serene moments are recorded. Escaping the environmental stresses of the world, her landscapes are both meditative and sweeping monumental images.
A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design (bfa) and New York University (ma), Sloane has exhibited her work in New York, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Rhode Island and Paris, France. She has had several solo and two-person exhibitions of her drawings and paintings, including shows at the Chuck Levitan Gallery and at the A.I.R. Gallery in New York City. She has also contributed to numerous group shows, including the Westchester Arts Council’s Open Studios, the Marilyn Butler Gallery Invitational Exhibition in Santa Fe, NM, and the Chuck Levitan Gallery National Juried Small Works Exhibition. Her work is also in a number of private collections.
Sloane is also a graphic and web designer.
