Liz Elton

Liz Elton brings gestural painting together with landscape, exposing her work to the environment and documenting its transformation. Working in places that are subject to change; the edge of the sea, a beach backed by shifting sand dunes, an area of urban change, she aims to capture a sense of cyclicality. Documentation of damaged paintings serves as work, remnants are reused in sculptural pieces, and paintings are made on biodegradable material looking towards their future destruction.  

Recent shows include ‘Hundreds and Thousands’, Angus-Hughes Gallery; En Plein Air, Mecklenburgh Square; Art Athina with Lubomirov-Easton, Athens; ‘Continuum of Ceaseless Change’, A.P.T., ‘Slice’, Hanmi Gallery, The Exchange Project, A.P.T., and ‘The John Moores Painting Prize Exhibition’, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.  Her work ‘Atmosphere’ was screened at the Gate Cinema, Notting Hill, in conjunction with a showing of the film ‘Mr. Turner’ as part of a discussion by Winsor and Newton / The Griffin Gallery.  She runs the discussion group ‘PaintUnion’ together with Rebecca Byrne. 

Exhibited at Griffin Gallery in Pool in April-June 2016.
