Lisa Reid

Lisa Reid is an established artist working across ceramics, painting, drawing and printmaking. Old family photos and popular culture inspire her work, which is meticulously constructed, with preliminary workings derived from images as a blueprint. In particular, her portraits of well-known icons reflect a unique perspective on personalities that dominate our culture. Her 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 been attending the Arts Project Australia studio since 2002 and had her first solo exhibition at Arts Project Australia in 2015. She has been exhibited in numerous group shows at Spring 1883, ACCA, c3 Contemporary, Moree Plains Gallery, Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery and The Ian Potter Museum of Art. Reid’s work is held by private collections, the National Gallery of Australia and the National Gallery of Victoria (as gifted by Stuart Purves).
