Lisa BardenLisa Thompson 

Lisa Isadora Thompson received her BA from University of South Florida in 2001 and her MFA from Florida State University in 2004 where she taught for a year following graduation. Since 2005, she has taught classes at North Florida Community College including Painting I & II, Drawing I & II, Design I & II, Ceramics I & II, Special Topics (studio art), and Humanities Art. In addition to her teaching duties, Thompson is the curator and director of the Hardee Center for the Arts exhibiting both local and national talent. In 2009, she founded the NFCC Public Art Program which allows for a yearly visiting artist to create a permanent piece of public art for the college while engaging the students through various workshops.

Most recently, Thompson has been working on four bodies of work with unrelated themes:

 The realistic oil painting series, “Stacks”, depicts everyday objects piled in desolate environments as metaphors for the relentless tasks and continuous needs and desires that are difficult to fulfill.   

“Bugs” is a series of small, realistic drawings combining water color pencils and ink investigating the often overlooked and "insignificant" creatures in order to appreciate their textures, colors and complexity.

Inspired by Hiroshige’s “100 Views of Edo” woodblocks, Thompson’s watercolor pencil and ink drawings  combine Japanese elements with realism while describing various aspects of her life in rural North Florida.

Contrasting greatly with the realism of Thompson’s other work, the anthropomorphic clay masks are whimsical and imaginative concoctions incorporating both human and animal characteristics.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I am consumed with the process of sculpting: the physical act of creating by the deconstruction and reconstruction of ideas. The struggle to reassign beauty,
power and meaning to both found and raw materials. Allowing these forms to exist free of the constraints of the expected norm. The entanglement, the blood, sweat and smoke, the challenge of steel, fire and
heat. I call this the romance of construction, and thru this action I seek to challenge the familiar. It is my hope that the viewer will join me on this journey.

ARTIST'S BIOGRAPHY

Mark Dickson starts with concepts like form, negative space, and abstract suggestion.  Then guided by themes like; music, flight, wind, water, machinery, and even personal guardians, he shapes freestanding or pedestal-mounted sculptures.  He combines shapes to form a single piece of singular emotional influence. The result is a realization of the beauty of the abstract form.

Mark draws on knowledge acquired from independent studies in metal design, fabrication, casting, foundry methods, and blacksmithing.  Three influences were; Professors Jim Devore of Sierra College in California, Charles Hook, the late Professor of Sculpture at Florida State University, and the late Master Craftsman Jerry Grice.  Marks’ work is collected throughout the United States in public and private collections.  His fluid large-scale pieces are appropriate for landscape architecture and opened interiors.  His sense of tight design, light abstraction and use of negative space suit the modern style, for areas ranging from compact to expansive.

Dickson is a native of northern California and has been a resident of Tallahassee Florida for twelve years.  He teaches sculpture part time as an adjunct instructor at North Florida Community College in Madison Florida, and is a full time sculptor with a working studio in Tallahassee.
