Lisa Esherick is a figurative painter with abstract leanings. She chooses subjects from my surroundings and experiences. She wants to convey the emotional presence that she finds in the still world of objects. She wants to explore shadowy things—things hidden from view, what cannot quite be identified, things unknown that yet have great power in our lives. In working with the figure itself, she wants to create a range of possibilities for expressive interaction that speaks of the human condition in our contemporary world.
