Liz Lennox is a contemporary self taught artist living and working on the Queensland coast. She sells her work privately and at local exhibitions. Liz works mainly in oils and cold wax with other drawing media on paper. This process gives her work richness and depth and allows each layer to speak for itself in the finished work.
Liz loves the freedom of expression gained through the use of colour and form and believes that the underlying narrative of the work is what makes it real - giving meaning and authenticity. She takes inspiration from a variety of sources including nature, memories and spirituality. Her layered abstract style is uniquely colourful, full of imagery, sometimes whimsical.
An interesting fact is that Liz doesn’t use paintbrushes in her work. She uses fingers, hands, paper, cardboard, baby wipes, sticks, spatulas, wedges, knives, spoons, found charcoal, pumice, or shells - whatever’s available at the time. This process can be energetic, even violent sometimes - at other times it’s slow and meditative; depending on that tension that exists between the head, the heart and the hand.
Liz expects the viewer to connect with her abstract narrative work at an emotional level, describing her work as both hopeful and expectant. She believes that her art sometimes asks more questions than it answers and that this encourages the viewer to respond to the work.
