Lisa Fulton

Knoxville, TN: I-40 and US 129 
20" x 19.5"
Lisa Fulton uses satellite-view of highway landscapes to create her abstract shapes and forms. The roads tend to stay flat and crisp, while the space between use a variety of expressive marks to give the image further energy, above and beyond the colors. Fulton's painted lines seem to move and flow fast and freely, a Utopian traffic world. While the marks round the lines seem to be in direct contrast, filled with anxiety and stress. Fulton is fearless with color, but there is a measured of tonality. Each of her paintings relate, but much like the highways Fulton depicts, each work have real individual character.
