In my paintings, I am constantly searching for a balance between abstraction and figuration. Urban structures and people intertwine through a process of layering, obliterating and tracing. Images are painted in, painted out and painted over…forming a history in layers of paint which evokes the transformation of urban space. —Lisa Chandler
