Lisa Snook is a London based artist and member of The Royal Society of Sculptors. She studied at Chelsea School of Art and Goldsmiths. After graduating she showed with Martin Maloney where her work was notably reviewed in The Guardian on Sunday.
Since then her work has been shown nationally and internationally, is held in a number of private collections and has been reviewed in a wide range of publications, including Culture24 and the Financial Times.
Following a personal trauma in 2014, Snook trained to become an art psychotherapist and received her Masters in 2018. This has deepened her capacity to implement psychoanalytic thought into her making process and in recent years has led her work in the direction of examining the relationship between psychological states of mind and their expression in the body.
Her sculptures exhibit a visceral quality that speak of the binary connections between trauma and memory, love and loss, ritual and remembrance.
Whether through the haptic exploration of clay to reveal the body in flux, caught between gestural expression and figural form, or from the collaging of found objects and cast body parts. Snook says of her work,
'I aim to make something of beauty with an underbelly of darkness, knowing that nothing remains the same.'
