Lisa Levasseur is a self-taught Canadian artist that has been producing art since 2010 and showcases and an impressive amount of work despite recently starting her professional artistic career. As an artist, the techniques that she uses are highly innovative, creating artworks unlike any other that are abstract regarding form and highly virtuosic regarding technique. Specifically, she uses an interesting and innovative technique that balances between painting and sculpture, thus has an immensely diverse approach to art.
Innovation lies at the very core of Lisa Levasseur’s artistic work. PalleteAr™ which is her personal technique fuses elements of painting and drawing, creating forms that are uniquely brilliant and fresh. She works them in an intensely personal way, by adding and sculpting layers of dried acrylic color, recycling the material and reshaping it into new artistic forms that contribute to the development of her rich artistic expression. The concept of transmutation which is innate to such a process leads to artworks that are original thematically and technically. Thus the viewer experiences an entirely unique and new experience, something extremely rare and admirable. These artworks, abstract in nature, revolve around the core ideas of abstraction in art, namely self-referring artworks that exist on their own and develop a wide array of concepts not by direct visual depiction, but rather through more cognitive processes. The artworks that she produces remain faithful to these core ideas and even expand them by introducing material as a part of the conceptual processes of the realization of artwork. Specifically, the recycled acrylic color is not only a choice of materials but also a choice which is deeply thematic as it is connected to contemporary social and environmental issues.
