Lisa White - Bio

The natural world never ceases to excite, inspire and surprise me. It is the driving force that underpins my work.

Nature acts as a key for me- unlocking doors to my imagination.

I create harmonious and balanced compositions from natural materials and this practice brings me closer to understanding myself and the world.

I am fascinated by the innate beauty of the patterns, lines and colours in nature and I have strong leanings toward detail, design and repeated patterns.

I’m an avid collector and I spend a lot of time outdoors, walking, exploring and collecting. I live on the land and am surrounded by animals, birds and bush, so I have unlimited access to feathers, nuts, seeds, leaves, grasses, stalks, wood and bark, all of which I employ in my art works.

I collect, rearrange, build and transform. I gather, dry, soak and dye, I stitch, coil, weave, twine, knot, net and glue. I am attracted in general to the small, the overlooked and in the creation of my works I aspire to bring awareness and rebirth to things which usually go unseen or simply decay.

I have a deep and profound connection to the earth, the environment and remote and wild places in Australia and spend as much time as possible exploring such places. I make art from materials endemic to the area in which I find myself.

Many of my works represent a moment in time, a place which has moved me deeply, or they can be an intimate expression of a mood, a concept, a thought or a dream.
