Bio

Lisa Horlander is a mixed-media artist whose work explores visual spaces in between and within. She includes unconventional materials to bring content to her work about moments in time, and our impact on the environment, as well as connect shared experiences within a community.

She graduated with her BFA in studio arts at The University of Texas at Tyler in 2017, and with her MA in 2023. She was part of Cohort 2 with the Cedars Union in Dallas where she was both a Studio Artist as well as part of their Curatorial Committee. She participated in the Summer Residency Program at New York University in 2018 where she mentored under the artist Valerie Hegarty. Horlander has exhibited her work spanning the US most recently with Chaos! 9 at Ro2 Art in Dallas, The Other Art Fair Dallas, the Janette Kennedy Gallery in Dallas, and The Tyler Museum of Art.

My work explores spaces between and within with an emphasis on visual negative space. The imagery in my work focuses on the natural ecosystems surviving within urban development in my nearby surroundings, where I see metaphors for human experiences within the survival and devastation of those ecosystems. I am interested in portraying the visual contours between tree branches and roots along with using ephemeral colors from transitions in time like Dawn or Dusk and the changing seasons, in the imagery I capture on paper using a variety of 2D drawing and painting techniques. I manipulate those surfaces to create polymorphic forms shaped to mimic the visual negative spaces I reference in my 2D imagery. These objects hold a conversation between each other which includes the viewer, about our interaction both positively and negatively, with the ecosystems we live in and their fleeting beauty.
