Grubbs Gallery Presents Lise Lemeland

LL_060214_01smlOn Display: October 5-November 1
Reception: Saturday, October 18, 1:30-3:30 p.m.

As an aerobatic pilot, Lise Lemeland draws upon what she sees to convey the experience of flight. In her artist’s statement, she notes that she’s long been interested in visually complex patterns, and the visual cues that are a crucial part of flying aerobatics.

“This extreme type of flying requires intense focus and sensatory interpretation,” she wrote in her statement. “When I am in the studio, I am devoted to finding ways to translate these breathtaking and disorienting experiences of flying.”

Ms. Lemeland received her BA from Stanford University, her BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, and her MFA from Hunter College. In 2006, she received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, followed by a grant in 2009 to flight as part of her artistic research, as well as a scholarship for aerobatic training from the International Aerobatic Club.

Her paintings have been exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum, in Washington, DC, where they are also part of the permanent collection, and Gallery 22E41 in NYC.
