Lisa Cardenas Silence is Home
In the passing of a loved one – silence comforts me.
 
Silence is my remedy; it begins at the point of departure. The absence of sound reveals the conduit to the memories of the past. My paintings reflect my healing journey. The painting “Silence” depicts the attempt to fill the void with overpowering noise. Only to discover that true healing comes through silence. With every painting completed, there came a deeper calm.
My abstract paintings are characterized by bold strokes, and numerous layers using strong colors befitting of the intimate emotions depicted. In all…silence is home.

A graduate of The University of North Texas (UNT), she is a member of Irving Arts Center, Texas Sculpture Association, MutualArt.com, Creative Arts Center in Dallas, Texas and Dang! (Dallas Artistic Networking Group). Lisa continues to express herself through the mediums of mixed media, pencil, charcoal, pastels, watercolors, oil, acrylic, print, sculpture, and collage.  Lisa M. Cardenas currently holds a Master of Fine Arts and Technology from The University of Texas at Dallas.
