Lisa Denyer

Lisa Denyer's process derives from every day observations, and the subsequent abstraction of certain imagery through painting. Each piece begins with careful considerations around colour, which often evolve into prolonged investigations over a series. Lisa is interested in the idea of interventions, whether accidental, intentional, natural or human. Her work explores matter, materiality and changing states. Biography Lisa Denyer graduated from Coventry University in 2009 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. In 2010 she received second prize in the Gilchrist Fisher Award, held at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery, London. Other awards include being short listed for Salon Art Prize 2010, The Title Art Prize 2011 and Bankley Open 2013 and 2014. Recent exhibitions and curatorial projects include Geode (2014); a solo show at South Square Gallery, Thornton, Society of Island Universes (2014) at Piccadilly Place, Manchester, About Painting (2014) at Castlefield Gallery, Manchester, and @PaintBritain (2014/15) at Ipswich Art School Gallery. Forthcoming exhibitions include Contemporary British Abstraction at SE9 Container Gallery, London (February 2015), and INBOX at Art-Athina, Athens (June 2015). Lisa won the PS Mirabel Open Exhibition in 2015.
