‘Speaking Of The Arts’ With LiShinault

LiShinault (a portmanteau of her full name, Lisa Shinault) is a multimedia figurative painter in Atlanta. She experiments with surreal imagery of women and animals, with symbolic meanings to her. Some works are near life-size, with painted costumes meant to be taken off or put on, like giant paper dolls. She also has artworks involving cut-up canvas, yarn, and other visual interruptions meant to show obvious, bold changes to the artwork through its process.

In this installment of “Speaking of the Arts,” LiShinault talks about her process, the music, teachers, and historical artists that have inspired her, and her personal story of developing as an artist in Georgia. Her artwork will be featured in a group show in August, at 378 Gallery in Candler Park.
