Lisa Taliano, “Probable Cause”, 48” x 50”, oil on linen, 2014
My work is defined by indeterminate rules that shift and change in the process of making and doing. I mark the location of my awareness in the midst of the multiplicity and the intervals between things that open onto new possibilities and unchartered directions; creating a loose, unfinished structure made from senations prior to forms and representations. The optic and haptic construction produced is based on a logic that is not about resoving contradictions, but rather weaving together the energies and reflections on the intense and peculiar complexity in the fabric of things. The aim of the game is to find the conditions under which something new can be created.
