"Lisa has adapted her process of painting and drawing into a ritual of form exploration that is absolutely captivating,” said Alan Simmons, founder and president, Alan Simmons Art + Design.

Alan Simmons Art + Design, a fine art gallery and consultancy presents "Ephemeral Dreamings: Recent Paintings by Yelizaveta Nersesova." The event will be held this Saturday, May 18, 2013, 5:00-8:30 PM at 1415 Slocum Street, Suite 105, Dallas, TX 75207, 214-745-ALAN (2526), Dallas Design District. Ms. Nersesova’s exhibition will run through June 22, 2013. She previously debuted her work at Alan Simmons Art + Design in June 2012.

Yelizaveta (Lisa) Nersesova was born in Iran and spent her childhood in Africa. Her early teenage years were in Russia and at the age of 14, she and her family relocated to Texas. Lisa attributes her need to treat painting as a ritual due to the extensive travel and strong sense of dislocation during her formative years. Through ritual, she brings the disparate parts of herself into a cohesive whole.

With the premiere of her latest collection, Ms. Nersesova showcases abstract works focusing on color, patterns, and texture influenced by African Aboriginal conceptions.

Ms. Nersesova received a B.F.A in Studio Art and Art History from the University of North Texas, 2005 (Magna Cum Laude); M.F.A. in Drawing and Painting, Southern Methodist University, 2007; M.A in Art History, University of North Texas, 2008.

"Lisa has adapted her process of painting and drawing into a ritual of form exploration that is absolutely captivating,” said Alan Simmons, founder and president, Alan Simmons Art + Design. “There is a dichotomy of chaos and order where free form abstractions combine with meticulously controlled detail.”

“Her submersion into other cultures, such as living in Russia and Africa, has played an enormous role in her artistic process,” added Simmons. “There has been a dramatic shift in her compositions since the show we had for her last year."
