The Wild’s
30 SW Century Dr. #120, www.thewildsbend.com
Solo exhibit by Lisa Marie Sipe. Hot wax and vibrant color heat up The Wild’s where local artist Lisa Marie Sipe shows her encaustic monotypes. Lisa creates her monotypes by painting with melted pigmented wax sticks on a heated metal surface. This imagery is then transferred to paper when it is pressed onto the metal and then pulled back taking the pigment with it to cool into place. All of Lisa’s work is inspired by nature; the colors, the shapes, and the often subtle and seemingly random pieces that all somehow just fit together. Most of Lisa’s art is very planned and she knows what will be created before it’s even started. Lisa’s monotypes are almost the opposite. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to plan a monotype. This makes it so Lisa has to create on the fly and in the moment. It allows her to feel more free with her work and create a different view still inspired by nature. “In my other work, I show you what I’ve seen and experienced in nature. In my monotypes, I convey more of the feeling of what I see in nature.” Lisa Marie Sipe is a local artist and creative entrepreneur. Her artwork been exhibited at the Tucson Museum of Art, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, Westbeth Gallery in New York and many other galleries and museums nationwide.
