We ❤️ Lisa Sanditz's 'painterly moves' in Mother's Day Staff Favorite 'Landscape Painting Now'

"For over fifteen years, Lisa Sanditz's pulsating, Kool Aid-colored landscapes have captured the intersection between the natural world and built environments and its effect on food production, consumption, ecology and the economy," Susan A. Van Scoy writes in Mother's Day staff favorite, Landscape Painting Now. "Sanditz travels to diverse places—single-industry cities in China, junk food factories in Arizona, industrial sites in Miami—and collects artifacts, smells, tastes and stories, making sketches and taking photographs, then returns to her studio to replicate the human action on the land, using what she calls her 'painterly moves.'" Sanditz came up with the idea for Fumigation Tents (2016), pictured here, while driving around Los Angeles, where termite extermination tents are common. "The whimsical landscape is dotted with a number of these tents," Van Scoy writes, "but color seeping out of their lines as well as aerosol spray-paint marks at the top of the painting hint at their deadly purpose."
