Lisa Reid is an established artist working across ceramics, painting, drawing, printmaking and digital media. Old family photographs and popular culture inspire her works, which she meticulously constructs from preliminary workings derived from images as blueprints. In particular, her portraits of popular icons reflect a unique perspective on personalities that dominate our culture. Her oeuvre reveals a rich and highly detailed viewpoint on everyday life, which is observational as well as self- reflective in nature.
Reid has worked in the Arts Project Australia studio since 2002 and held her first solo exhibition there in 2015. She has exhibited in many group exhibitions in Australia and overseas, including at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art and the Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne, and the Film & New Media Festival in Adelaide. Her work is held in the National Gallery of Victoria and the National Gallery of Australia.
