Iris Project held an open studio event with Lisette Schumacher in conjunction with its artist residency program on May 7, 2022. If you would like to view artwork after the event, the residency runs through May 14, 2022. Please email for all inquires or to arrange a studio visit.

Lisette Schumacher is a visual artist whose work revolves around research on modern architecture. Often, the formation of a new series starts with careful observation. She explores new environments by visiting residential complexes or architectural sites, taking note of the construction of these space, their shapes and dimensions. 

The artist pays special attention to how light is optimized for the user. Her visits to architectural sites involve her taking numerous pictures and absorbing and memorizing the atmosphere.

Back in Schumacher’s studio, in-depth research into technique, material and color schemes results in abstract, layered and spherical paintings in which spaciousness is determined by color transitions and contrast. Gradients symbolize light falling and spreading into a certain space. Her artistic practice revolves mostly around painting, although Schumacher has explored the realms of sculpture and installation as well.
