Lisa Reed uses natural forms to explore ideas about systems and patterns that illuminate connection. Influenced by nature, movement, and the transformation of materials, she combines drawing, painting, and collage to create unconventional surfaces to which she responds with color, line, and gesture, loosely referencing the Abstract Expressionists.
