About Lisa Folino
Lisa Folino born 1958, Northridge California,
United States. I have spent most of life as an artist and a musician. Photography was introduced to me at an early age by my father. I live and work as a fine art photographer in Newport Beach, California.
Since the early 1990's I have been using Polaroid film/materials. Most of my photography involves experimentation and the alchemy of transformation.
"The Forgotten" is a series of images which took 7 years to transform through a chemical manipulation of the film. Like a fossil or a fresco, time has played an important role in the expression of this work.
"Shadows and Light" explores the way in which we perceive reality through the still life. It is also a journey into our dreams.
The portfolio "Primal Matter" is a complete degradation of the image. This reveals an abstract realty which exists below the surface of the photographic image.
"Love Songs from the Sea" is an exploration into matters of the heart, longing, desire, and melancholy.
