Fred Lisaius

 

“My recent paintings investigate the issues of loss and discovery. In this series, I include, as metaphor, species of birds that have recently become extinct and newly discovered bird species. The light in my painting is often beginning or end of the day. The flowers are usually past their prime or a bud yet to open. It is because of loss that we appreciate what we have taken for granted. Loss makes us look for something new, something different, something else… to fill the void. Because of loss, there is discovery.”
