“My process deals with taking the memory of an image, and highlighting its complexity and simplicity at the same time. These paintings are influenced by geometric thinking and a desire to capture the briefness of a mental picture.”

Based on the reinterpretations of iconic paintings of women from art history, Lister breaks down classic portraits to his signature flat, cubist-like, 8-bit-esque compositions through depicting them through his memory, then lets his audience analyze the images’ complexities and similarities at the same time.
