In “Conversations with My-Self and Others”, Lisa Stonham explores and exaggerates the tiny perfect moments … the 'right now' - that a more isolated and contemplative existence led her to appreciate. She captures ephemeral and impressionistic moments within the context of the everyday. These colour-driven abstractions engage with the temporal nature of light and physical space. Working in the field with existing locations and available light, Lisa’s work is at a concourse between documentary and abstraction. Although factual, her photographs are detached from physical or concrete reality and resistant to any narrative sense. Presented without objective context, the compositions and colour relationships become a subject in themselves. A non-objective 'visual conversation’.
Lisa Stonham’s artworks capture the temporary, ephemeral and momentary through immovable man-made landscapes. Documenting the ever-evolving relationship between light and time in the context of architectural space, to produce sensory and evocative colour field photographs.
