About Lisa French

The majority of my studio practice involves anthropomorphized wildlife in allegorical tableaux. Following the tradition of illustration for the moralizing stories of Aesop’s Fables and 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’ Uncle Remus tales and the 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. 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 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: Through regular observational practice, I draw and paint figurative and landscape subject matter, focusing on the representation of light and color suggesting atmosphere and mood. Sometimes I work with small-scale sculpture, conceptual toy theater and scenic design. I continue to develop a multimedia 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.
