Lisa Weiss, ‘Cosmic Window’, Exhibit by Aberson

Cosmic Window by artist Lisa Weiss is a grey, blue, and turquoise contemporary abstract mixed water media collage on Arches paper that measures 40 x 26 and is priced at $1,900.

Lisa Weiss’ work is about mark making, patterning, spontaneous movement, momentary awareness and paring down to essentials. She is continually looking for ways to detach from the past and future with a focus on the here and now. Weiss’ paintings are process driven by movement, repetition, materials, and place. Her works are for beauty and contemplation.

A professional artist from Tennessee, Lisa Weiss received her BFA
in painting and sculpture from Middle Tennessee State University
in 1990. She received a teaching assistantship to Louisiana State
University in Painting and Drawing and completed her MFA in 1996.

Lisa has exhibited her work nationally in solo and group shows for the past
fifteen years. She is included in numerous public and private collections
throughout America, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and Holland.
She has the honor of being in the Hunter Museum permanent collection.

In the last seven years, Lisa has attended four artist residencies:
Dorland Colony in California, Millay Colony in New York,
Wurlitzer Foundation in New Mexico and the Nantucket School of Art
on Nantucket Island.

She has taught design, painting and drawing at the University of
Southern Mississippi, Watkins College of Art and Film, Eastern New Mexico
University and Winthrop University.

Lisa has recently earned initial certification for teaching yoga from
Yandara Yoga Institute in Todos Santos, Mexico. She has traveled
the United States, Mexico and Europe. Lisa currently creates artwork
in her studio in Franklin, Tennessee.
