Lisa Marie Dickinson
Lisa’s practice is centred around the exploration of language in it’s written, spoken and gestural forms, with a key interest in asemic writing. Asemic writing explores the idea that line and mark can be recognisable without adhering to the strict rules of the man-made alphabet, something which underpins their practice. Lisa uses drawing, sculpture and photography to explore the simultaneous importance and irrelevance of language. Lisa is interested in how language can be made tangible and how tangible shapes in the environment can become their own language, and is interested in how the audience reads the shapes within their work, and how people interpret the language the lines create.
