About Me

 

Hi, I'm Sylvia Lippmann.

I'm a contemporary abstract painter known for art that is colorful, lively and energetic.

I like that abstract painting requires a leap of faith. It compels both artist and viewer to move beyond the familiar concrete world of reality and enter an intuitive, imaginative state of mind.

I try to express the energy, abundance, and fleetingness of life through bright colors and expressive brushstrokes. I'm inspired by nature's organic forms and rhythms, as well as my own inner feelings and experiences.

I want my paintings to:

  • take you places in your imagination and expand the familiar
  • energize you, spark your curiosity, and make you see the world in a different way
  • give you an experience of freedom, energy, and surprise
  • remind you that the universe is made up of changing, moving energies — and that you are part of that dance.

 

A little more about me...

Although I initially devoted most of my time to painting florals and landscapes, I became more and more drawn to non-representational painting as an effective and satisfying way to express my emotions and experiences.

As a a shy, introverted teen who began painting in high school, I embraced painting as a form of self-expression that didn't require me to talk to people! These days, I am more interested in avoiding my own mental conversations while painting. As I stand before a blank canvas, I take the time to quiet my mind, release my expectations, and open my heart to infinite possibilities. I then enter the ever-changing stream of experience, while striving to express the fluidity of that experience.

I am a primarily self-taught artist who has studied privately with several abstract painters. Specific artists that influence my work include Richard Diebenkorn, Georgia O'Keeffe, Helen Frankenthaler, Arshile Gorky, and Franz Kline.

Before becoming a full-time artist, I worked as a special education teacher and community college coordinator. After living in a Chicago suburb for over 30 years, my husband Dan and I recently moved to Nashville, Tennessee to be closer to our adult children and grandchildren. I'm already finding new inspiration in Nashville's lush vegetation, bright sunlight, and rolling hills. In my free time, I enjoy walking, reading, and coloring with my grandchildren.
