Lisa Reindorf combines knowledge from architecture and environmental science in her artwork. Her paintings examine the environmental impact of climate change on water. In aerial view landscapes, she creates interpretations of coastal areas – in particular rising seas and sinking cities.
There is an inherent conflict between nature and building. Built architectural systems are often intrusive and not in harmony with the environment. Nature responds with floods, storm surges and rising seas. Although this presents a pessimistic commentary on global warming, the artist feels that building more in harmony with natural water systems can ameliorate the deleterious effects on both systems.
As a writer for art publications she comments on art and environmental issues. She is also a visiting artist at universities and frequent lecturer on how artists interpret climate change.
