Lisa Bissett's paintings and drawings are often meditations on the beauty of ordinary objects. She enjoys immersing herself in patterns and repetitions, thinking about how things are created and used.
The series “Change” looks at the intersection of private bodies with public spaces. Another series, “When Dove met Rooster”, uses still life objects to investigate a range of dating experiences.
In addition to achieving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Manitoba, Lisa has completed the Mentoring Artists for Women's Art (MAWA) Foundation Mentorship Program in 2008 and participated in MAWA's Mini-Mentorship in Painting in 2010. In 2009 and 2012, she was the grateful recipient of Manitoba Arts Council grants.
Lisa's paintings, prints, and drawings have been shown at MAWA, Warehouse Artworks, Tara Davis Studio, Altona’s Gallery in the Park, and the former Outworks Gallery. Her work is held in various private collections in Manitoba, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. She lives in Winnipeg.
