Blue Sky and Feathers

Lisa Bennett is an artist based in Dallas, TX who uses natural elements in her work to create artwork in a style she describes as "graphic naturalist art".   In her work, Lisa explores themes such as strength & fragility, purposeful design & recycling, newness of life, creating beauty with discarded items, responsible stewardship, deeper appreciation for and honoring the design of God's natural works of art.  In her pieces, she also symbolically expresses ideas of growth, freedom, motion, momentum, exploration, and includes references to forces of nature, our planets, & the universe.  Influenced in part by artists - Henry Moore, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Julian Stanczak, Brancusi, and Georgia O'Keefe, among others, she strives to gain the viewer's eye with initial graphic impact and desires to draw them inward to further contemplation the inherent beauty of nature and its purposeful complexities. 

Lisa's passion for nature is driven by her lifelong and deep appreciation for the mastery, beauty, and complexity of the natural world.  With her background in interior and fashion design, she has been influenced by the tactile, visual, and aesthetic art world her entire life.  She grew up as the daughter of an art teacher in Northeastern Ohio, in a small town that is bordered by a wooded national park and beautiful rolling hill horse country.  As a young girl, she spent her free time outdoors, climbing trees and collecting "treasures" found in nature.  After spending many years in the interior design and fashion industries, in 2020, she began putting those inherent passions to artful expression on canvas creating unique pieces of art with a graphic three dimensional assemblage style.

 

Within her first 3 months of creating art, she sold her first piece to an art collector and interior designer in Sante Fe, New Mexico.  Within that year, she was invited to join her first gallery.  Her pieces have been sold to collectors across America. She is currently represented by Adams Galleries in Austin & Round Top, Texas. She is to be featured artist in the April/May edition of Western Art and Architecture - a magazine for art collectors, and architectural and design enthusiasts across the USA.

Clarity of Course

Symbolically expressing ideas of finding our direction.  As we navigate life, examining in a quiet way - calm, free of color (perhaps distraction), it can bring new clarity to finer details of life (perhaps bringing our intended direction into clearer focus).  Elements of nature presented in a clean, simple, pure way - the absence of color, the quiet nature of this piece beckons us to see with new eyes the finer details (perhaps even our intended path)  pointing us to further contemplation further the complexity & mastery of the nature.
