Description

Lisa Milroy: 'Still Life'

Monday 5 February 2018, 5:30pm

Still life is at the heart of Lisa Milroy’s practice: in the 1980s her paintings featured ordinary objects depicted against an off-white background. Subsequently her imagery expanded to include depictions of objects within settings, as well as landscape, architecture and people. As her approaches to still life diversified, so did her manner of painting, giving rise to a range of stylistic innovations. In recent years Milroy’s focus has been on installation-based paintings that often feature a performative component. Throughout her practice, Milroy has been fascinated by the relation between stillness and movement, and the nature of making and looking at painting.

Milroy was born in Vancouver, Canada and lives and works in London. She was elected to the Royal Academy of Arts in 2005. She is Head of Graduate Painting at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, and Guest Visitor at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam. Milroy won First Prize in the John Moores Painting Prize in 1989. She was Artist Trustee of Tate from 2013 -17 and Liaison Trustee to the National Gallery 2015 -17. Milroy’s work is exhibited widely on the international and national stage, and is held in many public and private collections.
