"A homage to the tropics and the natural world…” The light and lushness of the tropics have been a continuous source of inspiration for artist Lisa Remeny. Her paintings reveal an affinity for all things equatorial: sunlight and moonlight reflected on clouds and seascapes, exotic flowers, fruits, and palms. From the Caribbean to the South Pacific, Remeny interprets her surroundings through oil paintings and mixed media on paper ranging from photo-realistic to semi-abstract realism. She began publishing her work, first in the form of greeting cards, in 1982.
Remeny was born and raised in subtropical Miami. After graduating from California College of the Arts, she spent time sailing the Bahamas and lived for an extensive period in the Caribbean. She has lived in Coconut Grove, Florida since 1991 and paints on location throughout the tropics. So admired are her paintings that art and music festivals, as well as other events, frequently invite her to create images that represent them. She was the only artist interviewed on a Public Television documentary about Miami culture that was broadcast to an international audience of 240 million. Her work is in private and public collections worldwide.
“I am moved to re-create beautiful things; drawn to the light, to look for the magic. My intention is to promote to an aura of peace, happiness and well being.”
