    Liza Lacroix's portraits, characters 

    artist on tumblr

    Faces are the most expressive parts of our body, but as painted by Canadian artist Liza Lacroix they become confused blotches of thick paint. Perhaps that’s what pushes us to delve even deeper into them with our gaze.

    The series, realized by Lacroix in 2013, follows up on another collection of works on bigger canvases whose subject was the face of Commedia dell’Arte character Pierrot. After transforming her home in Brooklyn into a studio, the more limited and intimate working space is reflected in these paintings in a smaller format and its tormented subjects.

    The portraits are made using an oil technique on Lexan, a resin that belongs to the family of polycarbonates, used often for advertising posters. The colors are instead applied with a sumptuous yet tremulous style.

    Liza was particularly inspired by the representation of fabrics in fashion and art, with their rich tones and textures. In particular by a Prada ad campaign and an exhibition on Manet at the Metropolitan. Among her influences Liza also lists Mark Rothko, the artist who was a precursor of color field painting, and the environment in which he lives, made of simple and chance encounters: “Happy accidents” she calls them.

  13. Love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away… and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast…. be happy about your growth, in which of course you can’t take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don’t torment them with your doubts and don’t frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn’t necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust…. and don’t expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.
