ARTmonday: Lisa Goren’s Frozen Landscapes

I was pleasantly surprised to get an email from Boston artist Lisa Goren last month after a mutual friend suggested she contact me. Coincidentally, I had already had a number of these images of iceberg paintings saved in a folder to share.

I love the colors and shapes of Goren’s frozen landscapes, which she executes in watercolor. The paintings are based on her real life travels to polar regions, including Antarctica, Iceland, Alaska, and the High Arctic.

Two years ago, she even wrote about her experiences for The New York Times. The article, “In Hot Pursuit of Ice and Cold,” chronicled her participation in an artists’ residency program in the fall of 2013 during which the group sailed about 500 miles from the North Pole.

Her paintings are beautiful and a bit mystical, with more recent works feeling more earthy.  She says, “There is no other blue like the blue of glacial ice.”
