BIO

For over three decades, just what it is to be human has been the central driving force behind Lisa Roet’s art practice. She is committed to exploring environmental issues and genetic discoveries through an interdisciplinary approach to her practice.

Roet has worked with the arts, design and science communities worldwide to develop her multi-faceted art, using a wide range of mediums and materials.

Her work has focussed on some of the worlds environmental hotspots, including Borneo and most recently China, resulting in a series of large-scale public art projects exhibited at Beijing DesignWeek and, more recently, Business of Design Week, Hong Kong.

Lisa responds to the image of the ape and monkey as humans’ closest animal relative, the ape acting as both a mirror and social commentary, to remind us of the necessity to re evaluate our position within this increasingly urbanised world. She believes that creativity has the ability to present pertinent and powerful messages, a philosophy she represents through her art.
