The Wave Gallery in Key West Group Show
Lisa’s artwork was featured in a small group show at The Wave Gallery in Key West, Florida. There were several articles written in local papers about the show.
The Wave will also feature neo-pop wildlife paintings by artist and biologist Lisa Landsman of Tampa. Her paintings contain the vibrant colors and geometric shapes that personify Pop Art, only with a twist. She changes the content from urban consumer elements to the insects and animals she is exposed to while working at The Florida Aquarium.
“My work is inspired by my love of zoology and entomology, conservation, Pop Art, mid century modern design, bold color and an appreciation for the most unloved of earth’s beneficial creatures. I am very different from most wildlife artists in that my paintings are not realistic. They are accurate but fantastical, crisp and modern, with bright abstracted backgrounds, that only represent an animal’s habitat, like the stamen of a flower behind a bumble bee. I don’t want to make the viewer feel guilty about the decline of our earth’s species. I want to make them say ‘what a beautiful creature.’ That to me is much more effective.”
