The thematic focus of Liz's current practice lies on the body and its subtle and nuanced ways of communicating. She explores mark-making as a tool to capture the quiet sensations that lie in-between the loud murmurs and pain (which tends to be the only time we become aware of our physique) and is fascinated by these constant subtle tinglings of nerve ends that makes up our physical awareness. Each drawing is a transcript of a conversation with these sensations.
Liz's overall work ranges from abstract drawing practices and graphic design, to writing, and installation. Her preferred materials are of natural matter, as they are inclined to tell stories of their own, which tends to make for interesting conversations between medium and paint. Materials include wood, paper, fabric, skin, found or repurposed objects (as seen in the vinyl tiles series), and others.
Liz grew up in the town of Laa/Thaya on the Austrian-Czech border and currently lives on the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish Nations, Vancouver, Canada. She holds a BA in Graphic and Media Design from New Design University in St.Pölten, Austria. Liz thrives in silence and intimate collaborations and finds inspiration in learning with and from her three-year-old daughter.
