Victoria figurative painter Lisa Hebden is a 2003 recipient of a “Painting on the Edge Award” from the Federation of Canadian Artists. Lisa holds 2 degrees, in Fine Arts and Graphic Design, from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Her work has been featured in International Artist Magazine, Applied Arts Magazine, Art Avenue, Ceramics Art and Perception, The Vancouver Sun, The Halifax Herald and the Claremont Review. Her paintings can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, the United States, Germany and Australia.

Artist’s Statement:
Lisa Hebden’s paintings are about transitions, dreaming, nostalgia. She combines imagery derived from drawings, photographs, magazine clippings and imagination to develop scenes that could exist in the real world, but which have an otherworldliness to them. The irregularities that occur in the resulting figures further evoke a sense of transition. The luminosity of each moment is made more potent by the knowledge that it is fleeting. An apparently light scene can have an indefinable, darker side to it.

Open (invitation).
