Esteban Lisa
Spanish-Argentinian, 1895–1983
Follow

Though Esteban Lisa was an active modernist painter for over five decades, he worked largely in isolation and never exhibited his work in his lifetime. A man with mystical perspectives, Lisa believed abstract art was the way to communicate spirituality. He furthermore believed that the rising eminence of abstraction was a sign of global change, saying that “Art is not making things but reaching an interstice which makes it possible to create meaning.” His work was equally inspired by philosophy, science, European modernists, and abstract kinetic art from Venezuela. His compositions were careful orchestrations of color, gradation, geometric shapes, and lines; historians consider his works a sort of journal of his feelings and experiences.
