Faded Memories

Signed "Lyora Pissarro" (en verso)
Spray paint on plexi-glass

A stunning exploration of color and tone, this dreamlike colorscape was composed by the French artist Lyora Pissarro. The artist is widely admired for her highly modern interpretation of the landscape, which she deconstructs here to the point of abstraction. Evocative of the color field paintings of the great Mark Rothko, the work is a celebration of rich, joyous color, executed in a palette that brings to mind to deserts of the American Southwest. Pissarro boldly layers golden orange tones over cool teal, resulting in a powerful sense of depth and mystery that immediately resonants. 

The great-great-granddaughter of Camille Pissarro, Lyora Pissarro represents the fifth generation of Pissarro family painters. She is renowned for her colorful, geometric landscapes that celebrate her artistic heritage despite their break with the impressionist tradition. The artist describes her works as creative journeys, “often winding, mostly enchanting and hopefully uplifting.” Monumental and whimsical, her topographical creations represent the Pissarro legacy of artistry updated for a 21st-century audience.
