BIOGRAPHY

Lisa Carrett is a Sydney based artist. 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 which is both simultaneously familiar and strange.

 

Recent projects include her solo show Uncanny Archives, Artsite Galleries, 2021, as well as finalist awards including Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize, Woollahra Gallery, 2021 and 59th Annual Fisher's Ghost Art Award, Campbelltown Art Centre, 2021. Carrett currently works from her Alexandria based studio in Sydney.
