Lisa Jones

Lisa Jones is an artist, artist-curator and collaborator based in Sydney, Australia. Her art practice explores the relationship of cities with human interactions, activated through trace elements of associated hidden networks. Her multi-layered works make sense of incongruities, to reveal and merge incompatible ideas from the chaos and structures of everyday experience.

Jones has exhibited in individual and curated group exhibitions nationally and internationally, in solo and collaborative project-based shows in institutional spaces, artist-run-initiatives and commercial galleries.

Jones studied at Goldsmiths, University of London and Wimbledon School of Art before completing a Master of Fine Art (MFA) at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and a Master of Visual Art (MVA) at Sydney College of the Arts. She is a sessional lecturer at the National Art School and employed as Coordinator/Curator at Grace Cossington Smith Gallery. From 2005-2013 she was a director of the artist-run-initiative, Peloton.
