Artist Statement

My practice is rooted in storytelling. I am interested in the relationship between the personal narrative and inherited memory, as well as, how these mechanisms inform interpersonal relationships. Abstraction is the language used to interpret and reduce narratives to marks, lines and gestural drawings that become metaphors for relationships. I employ video to examine narratives that reveal struggles with identy, relationships, perception and to document a return to locations from my childhood that trigger narratives that reveal real or perceived violence. 


Lisa Diane Wedgeworth earned both her BA (2002) and MFA (2014) degrees in Studio Art from California State University, Los Angeles. Her work has been exhibited at Autonomie Projects, Papillion Art, the Luckman Fine Art Gallery and L.A. Freewaves. She recently exhibited new paintings and video in her first solo exhibition, Lisa Diane Wedgeworth: Star Tracking at the Nan Rae Gallery at Woodbury University (Burbank) and is currently exhibiting work in Hard Edged: Geometric Abstraction and Beyond at the California African American Museum.

Lisa Diane Wedgeworth is the founder of Project Space 2920, an artist-run curatorial project committed to exhibiting emerging artists and experimental works.
