Artist of the day: Lisa Pounders

October 14th, 2009 · 7 Comments

Today’s artist, Lisa Pounders, is based out of Oregon and had a career in technology before becoming a working artist. Lisa’s paintings are made of visual layers: intricate, textile-like backgrounds, graphic elements and symbols, and free-associated vignettes. The result is a distinctive mix of feminine aesthetics, pop culture and a decidedly modern sense of irony.

Below left is Pounders’ painting, Bachelorettes in Spring, a modern interpretation of Botticelli’s Primavera (c. 1482), below right.
