The starting point for all my paintings are found photos, but the photos I am drawn to are constantly changing based on what is happening in my own life.
The images I select create a landscape of found memories that often have very real ties to my own experiences. As a spectator to these images, I find a freedom that comes from not actually knowing the story behind them or the people in them and allows me the space to create a new narrative. Lisa Golightly is an artist living in Portland, Oregon. With a BFA in art, her initial focus was photography, the influence of which can be seen in her paintings. Her work revolves around memory and how snapshots shape, influence, change and even create memory. She works with acrylic and house paint, using found photos to create work that is both anonymous in nature but also very personal.
