ARTIST STATEMENT

Lisa's current work explores the patterns and rhythms of human life and the stories we create in the world we inhabit. From micro to macro, inner and outer there is a balance, a pulse that she strives to capture in her work. ‘The Devil is in the detail’ refers to a catch or mysterious element hidden in the details, and derives from the earlier phrase ‘God is in the detail’ expressing the idea that whatever one does should be done thoroughly, i.e. details are important. It is the unseen details that fascinate her. 

Lisa is a multidisciplinary artist working in photography, sculpture, collage, installation, animation and digitally. She is drawn to using found materials and the challenge that brings. She likes to work and rework, making sculptures out of items, which could be photographed and animated. Or not. Not working to a plan, each piece of work evolves until it feels right to stop. The work dictates the new form. The new rhythm. The new story.
