ABOUT THE ARTIST
Liz Fitzgerald uses acrylic paint on canvas and board, layered in an abstract, colourful and gestural style. She interprets and reimagines landscape imagery creating layers of colour and texture, sometimes visualising an aerial view, or the mood and patterns of wind in sand or on water. These are representations of the ever-changing mood and shape of the natural environment.
Working in visual arts education, Liz has a great interest in the opportunities for narrative and personal expression that ‘art-making’ provides. She studied and worked in graphic design before completing further studies in the education field. She continues to teach at secondary level, endeavouring to foster a love of the visual arts and of the environment in her students.
Liz held a solo exhibition ‘Sea of Dreams’ at The Nook Gallery in 2016 and has an upcoming joint exhibition ‘Juxtapose’ at G3 Artspace in September of this year. She has exhibited at Red Hill Art and sells her artworks privately by commissions and through The Artisan Storeroom in Flinders and Mt Eliza.
