About Lisa French

Most of my studio practice involves anthropomorphized wildlife in allegorical tableaux. Following the tradition of illustration for Aesop’s Fables and the moralizing stories of La Fontaine, these paintings are part of a series exploring hedgerow flora and fauna as metaphor for the human community, with references to Joel Chandler Harris’ Tales of Uncle Remus and the darker motivations that drive human interactions. These works rely on invented realism and illusionistic rendering, with special attention to comparative anatomy and theatrical lighting. I use traditional media, primarily oil and gouache. My painting practice also involves observational figure and landscape, and I experiment with scenic design, conceptual toy theater and small scale sculpture. As an illustrator, I work mostly with figurative, zoological, and botanical subject matter for advertising, packaging, institutions and publishing. I specialize in anatomical illustration. My illustration and painting have been included in numerous juried professional exhibitions and annuals, and my awards include Gold and Silver medals. I relocated from Southern California to the West Coast of Florida and now live on the Boston South Shore.

Projects: I am working (slowly) on a personal piece that combines object performance, puppetry, and live action. This work addresses the historical period of Reconstruction - particularly the phenomena of collective denial and the reactionary mindset - through a series of tableaux.
