Lisa Bartolozzi received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Delaware, and her Masters in Fine Arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis under the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship.
Infusing faith, meditation and her own personal experience, Lisa creates thought-provoking images of humanity. Part of her work focuses on what it means to be a woman and, more specifically, a woman artist. Drawing upon that idea and religion, each work not only becomes an interesting view of society but of history re-examined through a contemporary artist’s perspective. Her luminous paintings require layers of transparent pigments, which are then coated with wax. Thus her works achieve a Northern Renaissance look that allows her to unite the past with the present.
One person exhibitions of Lisa Bartolozzi’s work have been presented by the Delaware Division of the Arts under an Individual Artist Fellowship in 1992, the Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1984, and the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington, Delaware in 1997. Her work has been included in group exhibitions abroad with the Gruppo Donatello in Florence, Italy, the Vonderau Museum in Fulda, Germany, and the Kalmar Lans Museum in Kalmar, Sweden. She has also exhibited her work at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, Connecticut, the Arnot Art Museum in Elmira, New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Spruill Center for the Arts in Atlanta, Georgia and The Kitchen and Knoedler & Company in New York City. Her work is included in numerous private and museum collections.
