“Lizotte’s inspiration for the new works may be the real world, but her style remains assertively painterly. For her, illusion and realism are not only beside the point, but somewhat suspect, and anyway unnecessary for imparting a viscerally true sense of this place. Her topographical pigments and flickering, ragged edges -- that’s Los Angeles. As Lizotte sensed from afar and then proved up close, this beautiful city is mostly made of ragged edges. The thing is, she likes it that way, and she builds her paintings of it accordingly.”
