British artist Lisa Traxler has a multidisciplinary practice that explores the boundaries of 2D and 3D through space and form. The artist works across a range of media, including painting and sculpture, to create award-winning art that addresses an ongoing fascination with history and a sense of place, from an architectural perspective. A geometric focus is evident in juxtaposing sharp lines and fluid shapes. The natural development of her thought process is evident from her spatial configurations to the intricacy of colour. Shape Shifter is a “space painting” and suggests an evolution away from the wall into the places we inhabit.
