Statement

Lisa Traxler will take part in Sculpture Network's START'18 in January 2018 with fellow artist Karen Karen in a WWII Radar Bunker, Isle of Wight, UK.

Lisa Traxler MRBS, RWS, combines painting and 3D form within her practice exploring associations with construction, assemblage and components. Her abstract work traverses the two and three dimensional divide. Materials include vitreous enamel on steel and stitched paper sculptures.

‘The geometric shapes within Traxler’s steel structures look to have been lifted from the blueprint of a technical drawing documenting a secret architectural design. Lightly interlocking, carefully constructed, these fragmented compositions are slotted together, each piece interacting with its neighbour. The cut edges of steel function as lines in space interplaying with the surface mark making. These cryptographic sculptural drawings reference dazzle camouflage and radar, the hidden messages of warfare.’ BUILD touring exhibition 2017 & 2018.


Collaboration with LMA Architects, vitreous enamelled steel mural painted on house exterior featured on national television (Grand Designs, Channel 4, 2010/12) and Awarded at the Architects Journal Awards, London (2011) by architect Will Alsop.  Collaborated with furniture designer, Steuart Padwick, on the 'Muriel' table, a folding, hand painted enamelled steel table that folds to hang as wall art, exhibited at the London Design Festival (2016).
