About

For these paintings, thread, dimensionality, and light are Lisa Kellner's medium. They are inspired by a very special place where she goes hiking and to clear the mind. This parcel of land is surrounded by water. It’s first documented owners, after the American Indians, were two families, Pickering and Davis, who settled there. Through the woods, one discovers a field with the remains of an old granite foundation and an ancient apple orchard by the sea. She thinks about these people often and how difficult life was for them in this beautiful place. Kellner intends to capture the lyrical qualities of light, the subtlety of seasons and the sense of calm found there.

Lisa Kellner has created and installed room-sized installations and two-dimensional works throughout the United States since 2006. Her work has been exhibited at the Bellevue Arts Museum (WA), the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (NY), the Brooklyn Arts Council (NY) and the Weatherspoon Museum (NC), among others. In addition, Lisa has worked with galleries including Ascent Contemporary (NY), Project 4 (DC), Bravin Lee Projects (NY) and Tarryn Teresa Gallery (LA). Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and Sculpture Magazine. Lisa recently created site responsive installations at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum (FL), theCenter for Maine Contemporary Art (ME), Lehman College Art Gallery (NY) and the Target Gallery at the Torpedo Factory (VA).

Lisa has lived in Australia, Jamaica, and Western Europe. Travel and exploration remain an integral aspect of her life and work. Lisa received a BS from Boston University. For nine years, she was a mural painter in New York. She continued her studies at the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts in New York City, focusing on drawing and painting. In 2008, she received an MFA from Lesley University’s College of Art and Design. As a long time New Yorker, Lisa currently lives on a small island off the coast of Maine and New York city, immersing herself in lands of extremes.
