24 x 30
Lisa Cardenas grew up in El Paso, Texas and later moved to Dallas in 2004 where she spent several years studying art. In 2006, she enrolled in the College of Visual Arts and Design, in Denton, Texas, and continued on to graduate school in Dallas, Texas. Lisa currently works in her studio daily. Through a progression of applying various layers of paint, the scraping and removal begins to take place alluding to a hidden history, curiosity, and identity often impulsive only to return and continue the process all over again. The outcome is often vague and challenging observations, building relationships, by means of asking viewers to find their own meaning for the work. Lisa M. Cardenas currently holds a Master of Fine Arts and Technology from The University of Texas at Dallas.
