About

Art by Lisa Fromartz is in The Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, private, public and corporate collections. Her work has been featured in exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.

Fromartz’s new paintings evolved directly out of her earlier ZENO series. “I had been working for a long time on new printing techniques, working with computers and giant printers. I wanted to get back to pure painting, to load a brush with paint and move it across a canvas again, to draw, brush, pour, and throw it into something that felt open and expansive. I read of an archeologist who said that when he discovered a shard of an ancient pot, its curve suggested not only the complete piece of pottery but the civilization that produced it. I had this image in mind of a kind of dynamic continuum, a combination of pure geometric form and gestural marks that would extend beyond the frame of the canvas and reference the immense energy and mystery of the larger universe, seen and mostly unseen.”
