Lisa Who




Painting, Printmaking, Installation



“Female sensuality, form and energy are central to my work. The subject matter and material used within my work have developed from my interest in found materials, textiles, objects and printed matter that relate to the social and domestic interior of woman. The surface is no longer the silent partner within the work; it brings its own history and traces of human emotion and touch to the composition.

I work closely with the life model, experimenting with unusual spaces, live performance and objects to create a fresh representation of the female form.

Work can take the form of painting, printmaking, sculptural textiles or installation arrangements often inspired by the materials themselves.

My work will be exhibited at various venues throughout Liverpool’s Capital of Culture year including the Liverpool Biennial.”
