Lisa Reid

Lisa Reid, The Old Fashioned Cash Register with the Old Paper Dollar Notes and Coins (2018). Ceramic and glaze.

Lisa Reid is an accomplished multidisciplinary artist working in ceramics, painting, drawing, printmaking, and digital media.

Buoyed by meticulous attention to detail, Reid is inspired by notions of family, home, and childhood memories. In her work on paper, Reid lovingly references old family photographs, her observational yet self-reflective work documenting and capturing the dream-like sentimentality found in reflecting on the past. In her extensive ceramic practice, Reid recreates vintage appliances and objects, drawing from the archive of memory, each piece rich with the history of the artist and her family. Reid has worked at Arts Project since 2002 and held her first solo exhibition Lisa Reid: The Devil’s in the Detail in 2015. She shown in major exhibitions nationally and internationally, including Painting. More Painting at Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA). Her work is held in numerous public collections including the National Gallery of Australia and National Gallery of Victoria, as well as private collections worldwide.
