Lisa Nankivil

Biography

Lisa Nankivil creates distinctive and highly sensuous abstract compositions. In the horizontal stripes of her canvases, color and line and metaphors for travel, horizons, directions, and a sense of our place in the world. Working her surfaces with devices such as blades, rubber squeegees, T-squares, and pieces of cardboard and wood, Nankivil imbues these color bands with a feeling of depth and a current of emotion below appearances. Nankivil's images exhibit an ememental unity that arises from the carefully considered formal structures and the syncopated rhythms of her linear designs.
