Lisa Lebofsky's paintings present viewers with awareness and sympathy for the plight of landscapes facing extinction as a result of human impact. She finds inspiration and collects source material by traveling extensively, often to remote parts of the world, in order to immerse herself in different environments and cultures. She seek out areas around the globe that are particularly susceptible to the impacts of climate change, and meets with local residents to discuss how their community is impacted. To a great extent, these personal interactions inform what areas and what subject matter is ultimately painted. She paints onsite or takes digital photos to cultivate a library of images for later studio work. Recent regions visited include Antarctica, Newfoundland and Labrador, Greenland, and The Maldives.

“I want the viewer to think of these works as meditative piece. I’m looking at the landscape as a metaphor for the landscape in your mind—the transcendent psyche—a launchpad to liberate your mind from the day-to-day. The empty space allows the viewer to insert their own meaning into it.” She currently lives and works in New York City.
