Lisa Adams
Howl
2012
oil on canvas
53.5 x 80.5 cm
 "Lisa Adams creates images that are often unsettling, sometimes melancholy or by turns uplifting, but always affecting and richly atmospheric. The scale on which she works affords her involved and tightly realised paintings an intimacy that echoes the personal nature of her subject matter. Indeed, she explores grand emotions on a humble scale so that the very act of looking at her paintings is a revelatory and ultimately rewarding experience. Adam's emblematic paintings hold the promise of divested secrets and play with constructions of language through the incorporation of witty titles."
