Lisa Vlaemminck

Pop, plants, pathogens and petri dishes. These are just some of the visual associations that find their way into the rich complexities of Lisa Vlaemminck’s undulating painterly universe. Inclusive of forms often recognizable, although slightly skewed from the familiar, Vlaemminck’s paintings provide glimpses into trippy recherché regions from the microscopic to the interstellar, as well as the amorphous spaces in between.

Pulling from conventional visual vocabularies of painting tropes, still life subjects such as potted plants or bowls of fruit offer an armature for images to be built out from, remixed and re-encountered under new eccentric parameters. Brushwork often takes on the semblance of vases, vials, flutes, beakers, and decanters forming post-modern amoebae that dance across the surface. In these works definitions between signifier and signified become as equally viscous as the embryotic fluid that casts them in a kind of suspended animation. The semi-translucent membranes of alien flora frame multitudinous layers of under painting, offering vignettes into the atomic structure of the composition: florescent molecules comprised of individual gradient brushstrokes.
