Lisa Carrett is a young contemporary, Sydney based emerging artist. Born in country Narrabri before moving to Goulburn and later Sydney.
Carrett´s painting practice investigates the duplicity of the Australian home, playfully engaging with composition and colour, Lisa´s work moves between intimate descriptions of a homes exterior and the vast, uncharted territories of the broader Australian landscape.
She seeks to evoke both nostalgia and familiarity; yet, through what Carrett describes as, the uncanny archives, she is simultaneously referencing darker histories.
