This is part of a series of small-scale paintings created using scrape and scratch techniques called "Abrasion."  When I'm making larger paintings, I use small panels and canvases that I have laying around in my studio to scrape excess paint off my spatula. Eventually these small pieces turn out quite lush with texture and color.

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes signed, varnished, and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Lisa

Lisa Carney draws her inspiration from the earth’s layers and the history they hold. The drips, splashes, scrapes and scratches in her art happen spontaneously and come together to create a cohesive whole. She began to craft a more organic feel in her works after noticing the texture in her works resembled plant roots. She currently lives in Canada and admires artists like Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman.
