Born 1975, Melbourne
Lisa Reid is an accomplished artist whose dedication is reflected in her highly detailed, intricate work. Reid has developed a meticulous practice inspired by working from life, old family snaps and popular culture images. 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. Reid’s work reflects a rich and unique view of everyday life, in which the artist’s interpretation and translation of imagery is keenly observed.
Lisa Reid has work in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia, and has been presented in major exhibitions in both Australia and overseas.
Lisa Reid is represented by Arts Project Australia.
