LISA TORCHÉ

Interpretative Realms
July 31 – August 20, 2015
Reception: Thursday, August 6, 2015 6-8 PM

Inspired by the work of Monet, Degas, and Cassatt, Lisa Torché creates a feeling of calm and serenity in her acrylic paintings. Whether in the simple shapes of a vase filled with flowers, the peacefulness of her water scenes, or in the soft lines of a woman's form, her work is suffused with a harmony that is betrayed only by the wistfulness in the faces she paints. Torché's work often gives her viewers a glimpse into another dimension where people and animals share a close bond and are comfortable in each other's company.

Torché uses sandpaper, which she favors over a palette knife as a means of removing excess paint, to soften, age, and add depth to her work. This technique, used in conjunction with a color palette and contemporary style that evokes Gauguin, results in rich, deeply textured imagery with a story to tell. With her paintings, Torché hopes to "capture a few bright sparks of the beauty of this world" and focus our attention on it. Hers is a tranquil world, full of kindness, offering a respite from the "clamor and busyness" of life.
