From the physical space of her cliff-side studio, Lisa Lala explores the larger, intangible questions of our existence in an attempt to re-humanize painting. Her work connects to the white space, the peace and exuberance of our most contemplative moments. While known primarily for her paintings, Lala’s practice also includes sculpture, light art, and installations. Lisa Lala was born in California to artistic parents who encouraged her instincts from an early age. Her mother allowed her to maintain a work table alongside her in her fiber art studio. She also accompanied them on humanitarian trips world-wide, which fostered her unique perspective and exposed her to many different ways of life. Lala now lives and works in Lake Lotawana, Missouri.
