Lisa Walker is an artist/jeweller/designer mostly working in the area of contemporary jewellery. After many years spent living in Munich, Germany, Walker is currently based in her city of birth Wellington, New Zealand.
She exhibits and is involved in projects with museums, galleries, and other venues around the world. She is regularly invited to teach workshops and give lectures.
Her work is a study into the differences between an accepted notion of beauty or stereo-type, and something else – the search for a quality that we hardly ever see, but nevertheless perhaps recognise.  Walker says "I don't want to make pieces that are easily steered through our established channels, I want people to be forced to work on new syllogisms, analogies and positions." She is continually pushing towards the extreme - a method which enables an expansion in thinking and ways of working. Walker uses a large range of materials and techniques.
She makes reactionary work, consciously active with influences from all walks of culture and life. The pieces are often laced with references to contemporary jewellery of the last forty years, questioning and researching what jewellery means, what it can be. Walker largely positions her work around the history, future, and boundaries of jewellery.
Welcome to a lecture in which Lisa Walker gives an overview of her work!
