Medium: Mixed media on canvas
Description: Lisa Cardenas grew up in El Paso, Texas. Through a progression of applying various layers of paint, the scraping and removal begins to take place alluding to a hidden history, curiosity, and identity often impulsive only to return and continue the process all over again. The outcome is often vague and challenging observations, building relationships, by means of asking viewers to find their own meaning for the work.
Cardenas says, "My work is based on how we are connected both with each other and within the world around us. Today, we are also Web-connected, which allows us to have more choices and freedom to develop creative solutions and share information globally. For me, painting allows me the opportunity to see reality with a clear vision. All art is real, based upon physical dimension and limitless possibilities of current imagination.”
