Lisa Rosenstreich: Material Investigations, Opens Friday, March 09

Jen Tough Gallery

Join us for the solo exhibition of Ukiah artist Lisa Rosenstreich, opening Friday, March 09 with an opening reception Saturday, March 10 5:00-7:00. 

Lisa Rosenstreich’s mixed media work explores both abstraction and figuration. Obsessed with color and pattern, she works in oil, cold wax, acrylic and collage. Her work reflects an interest
in the natural world and human interaction. Utilizing a vivid, subjective color pallet, she constructs images through the building of layers of paint and paper, often constructing and deconstructing a surface many times before the final composition emerges. Ranging in size from 16” x 16” to 50” x 122”, this series of paintings and collages focus largely on formal aspects of shape, color and line; in part inspired by her experience teaching fundamental art and design concepts to students. Rosenstreich is an Assistant Professor of Art at Mendocino College in Ukiah, CA where she teaches painting, drawing, design, and art history while also managing the college’s art gallery.
