BIO

Lisa Wood is a Winnipeg-based artist. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Manitoba in 2002, and studied painting at Yale University, obtaining her Master of Fine Arts degree in 2005. Lisa has been the recipient of many awards and scholarships and exhibits her painting and prints nationally and internationally, at venues including Julie Saul Gallery (NYC) and Plug In ICA. Lisa recently participated in a WITH ART community art project through the Winnipeg Arts Council where she collaborated with youth from the Rainbow Resource Centre, and has attended residencies at the Manitoba Art Council Deep Bay Cabin and The Vermont Studio Center. Lisa was the Director of PLATFORM Centre for Photographic and Digital Arts from 2005 – 2007. She was an instructor at the University of Manitoba’s School of Art from 2007 – 2011, and is presently the Program Coordinator at Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art.

In the studio, Lisa is currently working on a series entitled Breaking Bread, in which she explores social performances around food-based celebrations. With an eye towards ephemeral experiences that bring out joy and revelry or social expectations and conformity, she documents a range of events including dinner parties, family meals and wakes. Time-lapse photography is used as the basis of a labour intensive investigation that encompasses photo-manipulation, animation, collage, studies, drawings, and paintings.
