***News****Liz will be exhibiting her current work at Safehouse2 in Peckham Rye July 24th -27th, with a group of artists in an exhibition called 'Process/Discovery'. See her instagram (giz2058) for more info or follow @process_discovery
This exhibition will develop work exhibited at Espacio Gallery in June. She is developing a body of work called 'Rock Paper Plastic - a game we are playing'. The work invites us to wonder what creatures of the future will think about the fossils and traces we leave behind, and what these might look like.
Some initial explorations were exhibited and sold at a recent exhibition: 'We Grow Into The Forest' at the Art Pavilion in Mile End Park.
I have been a practicing artist since I completed an HND in Art and Design in 2017. I also have extensive experience and knowledge of child development through being a primary schoolteacher and Early Years Adviser for many years. I have a passion for working with children and families to encourage and explore self-expression, and to develop confidence through the community workshops and drop-ins I run.
In my art practice, I explore my feelings and ideas around time, the universe and our existence. These ideas are expressed through explorations of locality - traces, footpaths, maps, remains, archaeology and archives. I use whatever is the most appropriate media, perhaps earth materials, collage, plaster, as well as acrylic, ink etc.
My experiences as a woman sometimes interrupt these more meditational reflections; at these times, my art becomes more didactic, exploring and resolving more difficult feelings.
