Lisa Reid is an accomplished multimedia artist working in ceramics, painting, drawing, printmaking and digital media. Often utilising preliminary workings of an image as a blueprint for her work, her attention to detail and focus is apparent not only in her painting and drawing but also her ceramic practice. Her dedication is reflected in her highly detailed, intricate work and meticulous practice, inspired by working from life, old family snaps and popular culture images. Reid’s work reflects a rich and unique view of everyday life, where the artist’s interpretation and translation of imagery are keenly observed.
Lisa Reid has worked as an artist in the Arts Project Australia studio since 2002 and had her first solo exhibition Lisa Reid: The Devil’s in the Detail at Arts Project Australia in 2015. She has exhibited in numerous group shows including Painting. More Painting, ACCA, Melbourne; Renegades: Outsider Art, Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery, Swan Hill; Sit Down, Shut Up and Watch, Film & New Media Festival, Adelaide; and Everyday imagining: new perspectives on Outsider art, Ian Potter Museum of Art, The University of Melbourne. Her work is held in the National Gallery of Australia’s collection.
