Lisa Caccioppoli’s paintings are abstract, yet aren’t bound, in the artist’s mind, by the limits of formalism, nor by rigid, self-imposed constraints on subject matter. Inspired by an organic process of thinking and making, the artist renders paintings textural, iconic, geometric, or layered, thus freeing the work from a singular aesthetic. Tone and mood become the common denominators that link the paintings to each other, their subject matter (which is often alluded to in the paintings’ titles) and their audience.
