Lisa Dawn Gold


Lisa Dawn Gold is a contemporary American artist who specializes in solid graphite sculpture, painting, and conceptual art. Gold is an alum of Pratt Institute.

Her artwork pushes boundaries of drawing into every artistic medium. Gold ventured into the meduim of solid graphite sculptures in 1991. Her scupltures highlight the action of simply drawing in a conceptual manner. Her drawing machines created a vocabulary of unique marks that can range from random strokes to fluidly writing backwards. Gold intergrates this style of mark-making into her paintings as well making them seem to defy gravity as they can be hung in any orientation. 

"For the work to be alive, it has to come out of the richness of the creative process. If I know in advance exactly what I'm doing, I'm not in the true creative process" - Lisa Dawn Gold
