Lisa Carrett is an emerging Sydney-based artist living and working on Gadigal land. In 2019, Carrett graduated from UNSW Art and Design with a BFA (Honours). Working across mediums including painting and ceramics, she couples abstraction with familiar and uncanny Australian icons. Carrett’s work explores transient landscapes both past and present, engaging with the way memory intersects with place. She seeks to disrupt and unsettle the audience through a bold colour palette, rendering imagery that is both simultaneously familiar and strange.
Carrett's work has been exhibited and collected in both solo and group shows as well as Finalist Awards. Recent projects include Blooming (2023) as well as Finalist Awards including Randwick Women's Art Prize (2023), Waverley Art Prize (2022), Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize (2021) and Fisher's Ghost Art Award (2020, 2021).
Carrett is currently practicing in her Sydney-based studio.
