Lisa Rosenstreich’s mixed media work explores both abstraction and figuration. Obsessed with color and pattern, she works in oil, cold wax, acrylic and collage. Her work reflects an interest in the natural world and human interaction. Utilizing a vivid, subjective color pallet, she constructs images through the building of layers of paint and paper, often constructing and deconstructing a surface many times before the final composition emerges. Rosenstreich is an Assistant Professor of Art at Mendocino College in Ukiah, CA where she teaches painting, drawing, design, and art history while also managing the college’s art gallery.
