Lisa Bartleson is a California based, interdisciplinary artist working across genres of painting, installation, sculpture, and ceramics. Bartleson is a part of the 2nd generation Light and Space Movement- a label for West Coast Minimalist art concerned with how geometric shapes and use of light affects the perception of the viewer.
Known for her exploration of materiality, her body of work consists of repetitive, meditative mark making and lustrous color strips. Concentrating on light, color, and luminescence, Bartleson methodically captures discrete transitions between hues of color. Evoking a meditative state, her painting practice is intense and calming, kinetic and stagnant as each of her works focus on a horizon point within the composition.
