    Artist's Biography

    Lee Lippman has lived and worked in Philadelphia most of his life except for a dozen years in Mexico. In his youth, he studied in Mexico with the muralists, Rivera, Orozco, Siqueiros, working on a mural crew with Siqueiros before returning to school at PCA (now the University of the Arts) where he was awarded the senior prize for painting. Lippman has had over 20 solo exhibitions in Philadelphia, New York, and Oaxaca, Mexico, and has participated in innumerable group exhibitions and is represented in catalogs. His work is in collections in various places in the United States, including (among others), The Phillip Morris collection, many Pennsylvania universities and colleges, the Hollis and Generalis collections in Philadelphia, the Nelson collection in Denver, and collections in Mexico.

    Artist's Statement

    Whether Landscape, still life or figure, my work is always informed by the natural world. The infinite space above and the finite forms of the land below and that which is upon it is the basis for this series of paintings. Painted in oil encaustic on heavy Arches deckle edged paper, this work is archivally sound. The paper is protected with three coats of gesso on both sides before the work is begun. Each painting is 41" x 29".
