Room #113 | Creation
Elizabeth was born in Poland, and after extensive travelling moved to Australia in the early 1980s, eventually settling in Adelaide. She studied at the Adelaide Centre for the Arts and graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Applied Design in 2004, majoring in painting and receiving an Outstanding Academic Achievement Award. Since her studies, Elizabeth has received several awards including the 2004 MinterEllison Lawyers Rising Star Award and the Art Stretchers Award for Highest Achievement in Painting in 2005. Elizabeth has also been selected to exhibit in the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize, represented ACArt Adelaide at PICA in Perth, WA, and is included in several national and international private collections. Her first solo exhibition in 2008, Recent Works, demonstrated Elizabeth’s expressive and intuitive approach to painting.
"When I think of word ‘creation’ so many things came to my mind that I simply have to go back to basics and look into a dictionary. So there it is one of the versions which relate to me the best:
cre·a·tion | /krē’āSH’en | noun: A thing made or invented, esp. something showing artistic talent.
But there is more because the act of simply creating a painting is not enough when it comes to my large, figurative paintings. I am aiming to generate a specific mood which is a very important element of my work. To do so I use selective colours, materials, distortions and objects to create an aura of mystery and wander. I like to leave for a viewer limitless possibility of interpretation."
So close to everything.
