Inspired by recent travels to Newfoundland and Antarctica, Lisa Lebofsky’s newest body of work is an exploration of nature in its most raw form. The images are rendered with thin layers of oil paint applied onto sanded aluminum. The metal is left exposed to produce a unifying luminescence that can either permeate each painting, or, if viewed at precise angles, obliterate the image. This fluctuating luster mimics the subtle movements of light experienced in nature. Images of reverie such as tidal waters, deep forests and ephemeral clouds are prominently featured — the cusp of infinite space and contemplation.

New York painter Lisa Lebofsky has her MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art and BFA in metals from SUNY New Paltz. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows both nationally and internationally. Among several awards and residencies, she is a recent recipient of the Platte Clove Artist in Residence Program in the Catskill Mountains of New York. This is Lebofsky’s first solo show in New York City.
