Artist, Art Professor, Texas A&M University

As a painter of the human figure, my work explores psycho-spiritual states of being. I depict yoga postures and hand gestures as physical metaphors for states of mind. My work can be found in many private and public art collections and has been shown throughout the U.S. I teach Painting and Life Drawing at Texas A&M, a wonderful balance to my life as a studio artist.
Posture/Gesture: Paintings of Laurie Lisonbee

ON SEP 25, 2018
Laurie Lisonbee shows artworks of the human figure in yoga postures as metaphors for states of being. Depictions of bodily contortions and mudras of the hand are crafted into relic-like objects. From art historical sources, junk piles, and yoga practice, Lisonbee derives a painting process akin to devotional meditation.
