how is it that you took one look and saw right through me
Oil on canvas | 2021
See across the span of time in Lisa Dengler’s new series, The Moments We Keep. Using painting and drawing in a ritual to help her understand the passage of time, Dengler shares her emotional release with the viewer as colors and shapes blur into one another on the canvas. In this intuitive way of creating art, it’s only when she steps back to observe each finished piece that the meaning begins to creep its way into Dengler’s consciousness. The resulting work transports viewers to their own past, present, and future as they contemplate the meaning behind each work.

“Through the process of creating art, I feel peace and connection to the world. Simply put, for me, creation is meditation. The mind goes blank and the body takes over.”
