Lisa Mee collects papers, fabrics and metals and integrates them into her paintings by careful cutting and assembling.Once mundane scraps are combined to create a mystique all their own which expand her palette beyond just paint to create richly textured surfaces. Inspired by florals, plant-based life and various formations found in the natural environment as well as stone and wood, she creates a cohesion of these natural forms to capture the elusive qualities of nature by using recycled materials in an aesthetic manner.
These artworks illustrate her commitment to express environmental concerns about the fragile state of our planet by demonstrating how to reuse and recycle in a creative way. At the same time she hopes to share a positive message about beauty that can simply be from the experience of appreciating art.
