An interview with Lisa Milroy, filmed in her studio for this TateShots video



Lisa Milroy invites us into her East London studio and talks about her long-standing love affair with paint. Milroy first gained recognition in the 1980s for her stylised paintings of inanimate objects, such as shoes, doorhandles, and lightbulbs, though her subject matter and style has varied widely since. ‘Physically engaging with the paint allows you to tap into different parts of yourself,’ she says.
