About the work
Lesley Vance
American, b. 1977
Follow

Lesley Vance is known for her loosely worked and gestural paintings that obliquely reference traditions of still life and landscape painting. Vance’s arrangements are precarious and idiosyncratic, often featuring unearthly or haunting light; these blur the boundary between the real and the imagined or remembered. More recently, Vance’s work has become more abstract, but still references the same still life set-ups. Vance begins by photographing her arrangements, which serve as the basis for her paintings; she then works in a wet-on-wet technique using a palette knife to create and erase strokes of paint. Vance makes each painting in one sitting because she wants “the image to all be in one layer, so you can’t trace the steps backward to the original.”
