Jerri Lisk
Artist Statement


"From my home, I now set out into deserts, up craggy limber pine ridge-tops and down into river canyons, to capture in pen the stark forms of trees, hills and valleys into compositions. Later, I paint their lines, redrawing these simple lines onto the surface of metal, layering each with intense color and depth of light. While it is neither conceptual nor literal, there is something about the subject of the trees of which I never tire. It seems as though these forms each have a story to tell."
