About Lisa Breslow

New York City is a constant source of inspiration for painter Lisa Breslow. The artist, who was raised on Long Island and studied at the Art Students League, creates impressionistic oil paintings of New York City streets, seeking out places and scenes that call to mind a psychological response. The images—which depict locations like Central Park through its changing seasons—blend realism and abstraction, with Breslow frequently turning the canvas as she works to gain new perspectives on the composition. When it comes to balancing subject and abstraction, Breslow says, “it is equally about paring the subject down to its visual essence, a visceral, intuitive process of working and reworking the surface and losing oneself in the paint.”
