About The Artwork

Learning to Dance is an archival Oil Monotype on Cold Press 300g paper. Monotypes were made popular by such artists as Paul Klee and Edgar Degas. This monotype was created by applying oil stick to plastic and then manually pressing my image to paper. By using my hands, I can create varied tones, controlled and painterly gestures as well as many unpredictable textures. Because I use minimal tools and materials, the original plate (or drawing) is destroyed with the printing process, making each monotype truly one of a kind. This artwork is recommended to be matted and framed under UV Glass. - Signed / Dated on reverse. Exclusive Edition of 1

"Multimedia artist, Liz, brings an obsession for line, color, and negative space to every medium, concentrating on architectural elements and geometric patterns found in nature." - Aurora Garrison, Senior Curator - My work is about structure and the reduction of the signal-to-noise ratio of any given work. Through this process, I am constantly creating more signal (that which has meaning) and less noise (that which is irrelevant) by organizing environments of simple shapes inciting movement to formulate a language, a scene, or theme. Minimalism and rigidity are the languages of my work. Sometimes that language speaks philosophically of issues revolving around global warming, civil unrest, and the aspects of man vs nature and other times it’s simply about the balance of shapes, color, and design. Line is everything! I lose myself in exploring the guidelines, functions and connectivity of varied shapes, styles, and elements. Clean lines and minimal details resonate. By removing the minutiae and focusing on the barest of essentials, I’m forced to analyze how line, color and negative space plays an ample role in the construction of various environments. I am especially motivated by artists such as El Lissitzky, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Elsie Driggs, Charles Sheeler, Lyubov Popova, and Blanche Lazzell. While still using traditional methods of creation (ie. marker, ink, paint, photography) the use of the computer has become prevalent in my creative process, as it allows for a deeper exploration of textures, tones, and shapes. -
