Lisa Who

Lisa Who is an artist, curator and the Creative Director of Curve Gallery. Born in Australia, Lisa has recently returned,  after having her artistic practice based in Liverpool UK for the past 7 years, where she  established Curve Studios in 2005 and Curve Gallery in 2007. Lisa continues to manage and curate exhibitions and Curve studios have grown to provide access, space and workshops for artists, including weekly life drawing classes. Curve Gallery opened in Newcastle, Australia on 27th April 2012 with an aim to establish a destination  creative space with a vision to support, expose and engage artists internationally between Australia and Europe.

Central to her artistic practice is a pre-occupation with figurative, natural and architectural forms. Inspired by travel and the urban environment, her work is often an abstract response to place; exploring time, movement and form through the deconstruction of collected objects,  printed material, photography and drawing. Both the built and the natural environment are inspiration for the minimal abstract shape, line and form as narrative, that interprets the closely observed subject.

Using a variety of processes, from both relief and intaglio printmaking, images and objects are often  repeated, cut, layered and re-assembled to reveal new meaning, symmetry and pattern. Working predominately with installation & printmaking, her practice also includes book works, large scale wall drawings and site specific public art interventions using textiles and drawing.

Who continues to participate in International exhibitions and will be artist in resident at the Bluecoat Contemporary Art Centre in September 2012, collaborating with Gill Curry on the print project, PASSAGE, where outcomes will be exhibited at the 7th Liverpool Biennial Contemporary Arts Festival.
