Lisa Ericson imagines fantastical ecosystems carried on the backs of turtles

Working in Portland, the largest city in Oregon, United States of America, artist Lisa Ericson combines her hyperrealistic painting style with her bright and vivid imagination, which results in fantastical combinations between plants and animals.

Ericson tends to focus on combining one specific flora or fauna at a time, creating a curious feeling while watching her works. On the one hand her artwork is extremely realistic, and at times it looks more like photographs rather than paintings, but on the other hand, Lisa Ericson’s wild fantasy transforms these simple pictures into wild scenarios where different animals and plants travel on the back of a turtle.

Her latest series of paintings, called “Mobile Habitats”, highlights the role of turtles that support various miniature or significantly larger ecosystems of their shells.

Ericson describes her artwork as: “these pieces are all about turtles and what they can carry on those amazing half-a-globe shells, and about things that need saving.”

These acrylic-on-panel paintings are included in her exhibition currently in the Antler Gallery. All of the originals have already been sold, but the gallery offers a limited edition of 50 full-sized, signed and numbered prints, signed by the author, Lisa Ericson.
