Thank you for visiting.
Lisa Mossel is a lens-based artist who grew up in Chadds Ford, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. Her practice uses intuition and awe to explore her surroundings. With a particular focus on botanical subjects, Mossel centers beauty to illuminate its importance to our spiritual wellbeing. The natural world is a salve for her own childhood trauma, the seeing and making of images providing deep healing.
Mossel has shown work in over 50 exhibitions including the Griffin Museum, Cove Street Arts, PhotoPlace Gallery, Maine Art Gallery, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Harlow Gallery, North Light Gallery, and Blum Gallery. Featured publications include the Maine Arts Journal, Island Journal, and Down East Magazine.
Mossel’s image Whirlwind was awarded a Juror’s Prize as part of “Women, Respond!” exhibition at Harlow Gallery. Under the Sea received the Jurors’ Award for digital media and photography in the biennial MOJAS show.
Talks include a Pecha Kucha presentation in the Rockport Opera House, and a webinar, “Our Maine”, featuring 5 Maine photographers.
Mossel is a graduate of Clark University and is currently the Gallery and Program Director of Archipelago in Rockland. She now lives in Appleton, Maine.
