Soaring by Fred Lisaius

Fred Lisaius was born on the east coast but now makes Seattle his home. He graduated with a BFA with honors from the Rhode Island School of Design.
Being outside, in nature, is an important part of his happiness. Nature is creative, beautiful, brutal, kind and honest. It is where he looks for Truth and he finds it everywhere.
His paintings are metaphors for both local and global communities. Within this theme, he explores the concepts of diversity, self, and truth. He invites viewers to find their own connections and meaning within his art. For inspiration, he takes a lot of photos and collects leaves, berries, mushrooms, bark, and other bits of nature. His art is also informed by images of pattern and nature from around the world.
