Lisa Clarke Biography

Artist Lisa Clarke strives to create complex, intelligent, and magical worlds. The women in her pieces are surrounded by danger, represented by grasping claws, menacing foliage, tentacles, fangs. Their innate bond with nature is represented by little birds whispering in their ears, lending their vigilance. Dignified and steadfast, each woman is poised as perceptive of the surrounding threats, unintimidated and wise.

A free spirit growing up in the Bible Belt, she learned early on to question the expectations and restrictions regarding women’s power in society. Later, living in Latin America, she delighted in viewing the world through a new lens. Clarke, an epidemiologist, became acutely aware and accepting of mortality and the human condition in her role as cancer researcher.

Her art is a synthesis of these diverse experiences. She meticulously and mindfully craft each piece by interweaving the unsettling with beauty and wit, in order to draw viewers in, layer by layer.

Over the years, she has developed a technique using mixed media assemblage to create seamless, porcelain-like sculptures. The process to create each piece can take months and hundreds of individual pieces, either hand sculpted or altered found objects. Most works include a variety of media, including porcelain, wood, metal, clay, ceramic, resin, and plastic parts that are embellished, altered, and used in unique ways.

Lisa Clarke Statement

The Artist: 
As an artist, I strive to create complex, intelligent, and magical worlds.  The women in my pieces are surrounded by danger, represented by grasping claws, menacing foliage, tentacles, fangs.  Their innate bond with nature is represented by little birds whispering in their ears, lending their vigilance. Dignified and steadfast, each woman is poised as perceptive of the surrounding threats, unintimidated and wise. 

A free spirit growing up in the Bible Belt, I learned early on to question the  expectations and restrictions regarding women’s power in society.    Later, living in Latin America, I delighted in viewing the world through a new lens. During my career researching cancer, I became acutely aware and accepting of mortality and the human condition. 

My art style is a synthesis of these diverse experiences.  I meticulously and mindfully craft each piece by interweaving the unsettling with beauty and wit, in order to draw viewers in, layer by layer.

The Art:
Over the years, I have developed a technique using mixed media assemblage to create seamless, porcelain-like sculptures.  The process to create each piece can take months and hundreds of individual pieces, either hand sculpted or altered found objects.  Most works includes a variety of media, including porcelain, wood, metal, clay, ceramic, resin, and plastic parts that are embellished, altered, and used in unique ways.
