Artwork details: Lisa Hawkins 'Faversham Boatyard' 56cm x 41cm, £500
Lisa Hawkins has a first-class degree and an MA in Fine Art, her main subject is landscape as a vehicle to explore visually how it feels to “be” in the world.
This interest in the interplay between the interior life and the external landscape led her to complete a second Master’s degree in Myth Cosmology and the Sacred, an experience that fostered a deep and continuing interest in psychology and mythology.
She works from life, memory and imagination – welding the spirit of place with an exploration of the human condition.
Developing a relationship with a place is central to Lisa’s practice, as the memories of each subsequent visit changes her perceptions – the weather, her own moods, current affairs, together with personal and collective associations. This forms a kind of ‘alchemy’ which is played out both in the studio and in the landscape.
Drawing daily is a pivotal practice in her art. She works in oil paint and her often large-scale works are semi-abstract with an emphasis on colour harmony.
