Lisa Calzavara: Artist Statement
Lines have many meanings. It can be as simplistic as a long narrow mark or stroke made on or in a surface. It can lead you places such as a path or in a direction of movement. It can also define a shape or give contour to something. Lines can unite or divide, so what does it all mean?
Instead of looking at the lines directly, Lisa Calzavara explores the shapes and paths that they create. She changes the depth of colors, adding shading and highlights to enhance the strong emotional feelings waiting to be unleashed. The lines hold things in but also lead to new areas of discovery and to the exploration of the emotional connections released by the shapes created. Between the lines is where Calzavara finds those meanings and she hopes you will enjoy the collection as well.
