(Australian b. 1974)
Redcliffe-based artist Lisa Christensen graduated from the Queensland College of Art in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours), majoring in painting. Lisa has exhibited in Brisbane and the South-East Corner, and her work has been selected for various prizes including the Thiess Art Prize, Gadens Top Ten, Clayton Utz Art Award and the Robert Jacks Drawing Prize.
Lisa’s paintings have evolved out of a “love for detail, colour and form, and the desire to convey something otherworldly with humble everyday objects”.
Extending on the rich history of still-life painting, Lisa is influenced by the Dutch and Spanish still-life paintings of the 17th century, that focused on themes of mortality through the depiction of flowers, fruits and other domestic objects that stand as reminders of impermanence in this life.
