Lisa Walker

Lisa Walker was born in Wellington, New Zeeland. She has been studying for the well known professor Otto Kunzli at the Arts Academy in Munich, Germany, where she became acknowledged as the best student in her class. Since then she lived and worked in Munich. At the end of 2009 she and her family emigrated to Wellington. During the years she has been gathering awards and frequently participated in solo exhibitions as well as group exhibitions. 2010 Lisa Walker wins the Françoise van den Bosch Award.

One issue of Walker's work is a study into the differences between an acceptable notion of beauty or stereo-type, and something else - the search for an aesthetic that we hardly ever see, but nevertheless perhaps recognise. She is continually pushing towards the extreme, and recognises this is a method which enables her to expand her thinking and way of working.
She works in a large range of materials and techniques.
She makes reactionary work, consciously active with influences from all walks of culture and life. The pieces are often laced with references to contemporary jewellery of the last 40 years, questioning and researching what jewellery means, what it can be.


SOMETIMES - mirrors of a subconscious esthetic

In May 2008 Lisa Walker showed more than 50 objects in a soloexhibition at Platina.
The exhibition "Sometimes" was a reference to her way of creating art with a multitude of objects and ideas at a time.
