Playing with light and exposure Golightly seeks to wash away defining details in the image while highlighting composition and gesture. This invites the viewer to tap into their nostalgic well of fading memories and project them into the narrative.
‘If Only For A Little While’ is a series of new paintings by Portland based artist Lisa Golightly.
In this new series of works on paper, Golightly uses high gloss Farrow & Ball house paint to create dreamlike portraits and landscapes sourced from found photographs. Fictionalized then digitally altered and printed onto paper, Golightly uses both traditional brush strokes and allows the paint to pool and move in an experimental fashion. This process serves to expose and transcend the nature of the materials.
Please join us in welcoming the artist for her opening reception at Good Eye Gallery on Sat April 9th, 2016
