“A work of disarming simplicity that is witness to the artist’s heightened sensitivity to the beauty found in nature’s details. Simplicity surely, but which is affected by paradoxical complexity in the mindful elaboration of the balanced and strongly built composition that skillfully guides the eye to travel throughout the generous elements of the whole. A remarkable work, noticed for its sensible originality, its appealing harmony, and for the fact that it highly distinguishes itself in the exhibition, through its surprising proximity with abstraction.” Sylvie Coutu - Art Critic (April 2017)

" The giant flowers in Lise Cree's paintings have a touch of Georgia O'Keefe in them, but unlike the American artist, Cree takes a poetic spin on her chosen subject, imbuing her floral portraits with lyrical narrative. Evoking sensations as much as visual pleasure, her acrylic works carry titles like Pink Heart and Bluebird, suggesting another way of viewing the shimmering, fragile bundles of petals and light. "
Dorota KOZINSKA - Art critic, June 2003
