Liz Sullivan

Liz Sullivan gathers the stories and sources of interest from her travel experiences to the great museums, to local tales and the lived experience of those she knows, and of course the images she can glean from the internet. She has noted the way stories change and information comes to light that causes scholars to shift their understanding, to reclassify figures in paintings and even retitle land forms and historical sites. Similarly, she allows the working process of gathering, printing out sources and painting to take on a life of its own. In embracing changes of colour, halo effects there is a sense of the postmodern in her interest to include the under-drawing and structural elements with equal reverence to the over washes and paint gestures so that all can be seen together. It lends a freshness and liveliness to her works.
