Lisa Adams paints “a better future”

Lisa Adams is a painter whose practice emerges from an intriguingly slow and painstaking process to produce psychologically taut images – albeit only one or two every year. I went into Lisa’s beautiful environment in the mountains to interview her for Artist Profile (Issue 44, 2018). She shared her thoughts on her art to date and the meaning of the realist paintings that convey unreal vignettes. She told me, “I am driven to make work, and committed to each image. For me there is nothing else. It makes sense of life.”
