Lisa Traxler RWS

Studied: Croydon Art College and Birmingham Polytechnic. Graduated with a BA Hons degree in Fashion & Textiles. Previously worked in London as a fashion editor and costume designer.

 

Focusing primarily on painting, Lisa works from a studio on the Isle of Wight. Lisa’s work includes: abstract paintings of water based medium on canvas & paper, stitched collages & installations, sculptures of vitreous enamel & steel.

 

Taking direct response to my environment creates my vocabulary - my work is the experienced, felt and intuited world, a connection with my own immediate surroundings and way of life. My practice is an a constant state of flux, transformation and development. 

The works transfer between abstract paintings and sculptural objects. Creating a sense of movement and directional energy concerned with boundaries functioning as lines that interplay with the surface of the various shaped segments. These reduced forms evoke associations with construction, assemblage and components.The gesture is in the shape and form of the assembled pieces. Working with two and three dimensional elements - the painting is the activity on the surface, the construction is excavating that through space and the ‘sculptural paintings’ the reinvented and re-assembled outcome. One informing the other, a relay of collaboration. 

 

“This work is a logical extension of the way of thinking that Traxler refined in her previous career as a fashion editor and costume designer. She has an instinctive grasp of patterns: not just in the sense of a configuration of shapes in a picture or design, but also in the way a three-dimensional object such as a garment can be cut, formed and shaped out of jointed flat materials. Some contexts for her work that I would suggest are the constructions of Peter Lanyon and Frank Stella’s convoluted wall pieces.’”
(Jonathan Parsons, artist, author, lecturer).
