Deriving from many different photographs – own as well as acquired – Lisa Adams paints small-scaled enigmatic scenes as a challenge to understand and to communicate her reality. The often quirky imagery can be seen as a veiled attempt at discussing more serious subject matters; their interpretation often revealing as much about our own view on love, fear, expectation… as the one of the artist. Self-portrait and scenes from Australian nature are a recurring theme of her dream-like settings.
The artist lives and works on a 15 acre native bush property in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland (Australia) with her husband, photographer Kim Guthrie. Read an interview with Lisa talking about her last show @ Philip Bacon Galleries in Brisbane.
