International Painting NYC at Jeffrey Leder Gallery

January 8, 2012 from 4pm to 7pm
International Painting NYC A Juried Exhibition January 8 - February 15, 2012 A few have said that painting is dead, but alas it is flourishing as never before. There is great work being done on the level of Gerard Richter, Susan Swartz, Tomma Abts and David Hockney, to name just a few. Over time, painters have increasingly gained the freedom to invent their own visual language.

Artist Statement_
Don Lisy was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and creates his art as if revolting against the Midwest sensibilities that dominate the critical and popular mind sets of his hometown. Influenced by Francis Bacon and Egon Schiele, each of Don's works is created in one session. By immediately succumbing to the emotional energy that inspires his work, Don feels he is best able to represent that emotion if he can complete that work before the feeling dissipates. Each resulting work is more of a self portrait of
an emotional event rather than an image concerned with aesthetics.

Don attended the Cleveland Institute of Art where he studied Printmaking and Painting from 1992 - 1995.

Don is currently living in Brooklyn, New York and continues to dedicate himself to his own personal artistic vision.
