About Lizzie


Lizzie Gill is a mixed media artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Her work explores themes of retro Americana in a contemporary context. Through a variety of mediums she illustrates a time warp, composed of everyday life, human agency and the disingenuous. The disingenuous nature of her work pertains to one’s ability to mislead through dress, speech or manner. Growing up in the digital age, this deception is often conducted behind a series of computer screens. This manipulation is also evident in her process. Her canvases are comprised of mixed media and oil, a process first approached through digital collage and then translated onto canvas. The imagery elicits notions of science fiction, with figures suspended in other dimensions, where natural laws, such as gravity, do not apply. Her work is a nostalgic look at both the American past and innocence with a twist, prompting one to question their sense of time and culture. Not everything is ever quite as it seems.

Lizzie is also the co-founder of the Brooklyn Collage Collective. The Collectives goal is to bring attention to the medium of collage through an ever growing and dynamic group of artists who display a wide range of materials and styles.

Wonderful and interesting

Hv2go...the signature is made with a block called a 'hanko' (in Japanese anyway.) They are still used to legally sign documents. I had some made as gifts for family and friends. You can find them and order them online.

there are titles for these pieces...on her website...and the titles are what the artist feels about the piece...the viewer is to come to their own conclusions

How about, Coca Cola Take Out and Clean Sweep

sorry 'Anonymous', it's up to the artist to use a title or not and it's up to us to use our imagination. I assume you always do as you're told, as you want to be completely directed by the artist. There's a Dutch book on art called "to think half a dog complete". In other words the artist is showing you something, he might! give an indication what he wants to 'say', but it is up to you to use your imagination/feelings/intelect/context etc.to finish what the artist started.
Lizzie's work invites you to think, fantasize, make up stories. Wonderful. I'm intriged by her signature, as it is the way artists in China used to sign their works. I could not find any info on this.

excellent!

It looses so much... potential when the work doesnt have a title. when you give it a title it gives the painting a purpose or at least a sense of direction for the viewer to follow, still they are good works of art but with a title I am more than sure that we would be able to appreciate them better.

I would enjoy it on my wall, but I don't really understand it

i ; ] your painting your crush Jazzmine

Thirsty for more!
