An artist from an early age, Lisa Madson learned drawing from her mother while her father taught her geology. The works in this show use a combination of drawing, mapping, printing and painting that reflects these early influences. “We are often mesmerized by the beauty of the world around us,” she says, “And these works utilize patterns and colors inspired by the natural world.” The process used in some of these works chemically transfers found patterns to the paper using a dye and carbon process. The papers are steamed over a mixture of carbon black, vinegar, iron and sometimes copper. Each mix imparts a different color print based on the strength of the mix and the tannins in the leaves. Others are direct printing transfers.
