Lisette uses her own visual language to convey notions of perception and memory, grounded in buildings and their surroundings. Caught between abstraction and reality, her layered pieces call for extensive admiration.
Through a process of study of substantive subject and figuration, Lisette Schumacher takes her work and moves it towards abstraction and back. Suggestions of space in abstraction function like gates to a concrete memory and recall the experience of mental space. Lisette has developed her own visual and artistic language, one that is both transparent and layered allowing it to keep revealing new bits of information as the viewer experiences her work fully.
