Lisa Grossman


“For nearly twenty years my prairie work, primarily plein air, has been a sustained meditation on open spaces. The power of this place, and my visceral responses to weather and shifts in light, color, and seasons, have been the true subjects of my work.
My work has always been about shifts and the ephemeral. I’m not so much trying to freeze moments in time as much as I am attempting to convey my experience of them. My wish is to share some of what I’ve discovered, offering a new way a seeing these waterways and open prairie spaces that hopefully, ultimately, awakens a new appreciation for them.”
- Lisa Grossman
