'AS THOUGH I HAD WINGS'
15th March - 5th April 2022
3 Works for 3 Weeks Series
Liminal Gallery is delighted to present ‘As Though I Had Wings’ an online solo exhibition by Liz Crossfield. Layered abstract marks with spring-like colouring lay the foundations for Crossfield’s beautiful canvases. Detectible paintings run amok with expressive mark-making and a rich vibrancy. Full of wonderment and curiosity, the artist takes the viewer onto a journey, seeing the world through her extraordinary lens.
Joyful bursts of colour, formations of recognisable elements peep into consciousness, before they are swept away in a haze of rhythmic colour. Crossfield’s practice is semi-autobiographical and has museological references, focussing on performativity, spatiality and a celebration of the feminine. Her studio practice is instinctive, intuitive and connects with the felt sense, inner voice, and the wild underworld. The work communicates the contradictional feelings of both the joy and fear of life, the lightness of being and the weight of the world.
‘As Though I Had Wings’ forms part of an ongoing series entitled 3 Works For 3 Weeks, an innovative take on the traditional solo exhibition promoting slow looking and true engagement with the artist, the artworks and the concepts behind them. Each exhibition in the series features 3 artworks alongside text and detail images to give an intimate insight. The exhibitions run for just 3 weeks and all invited artists are either national or international, but are currently working within the UK and Republic of Ireland, to show the breadth and diversity of art available across the countries.
Each Tuesday at 10am throughout the duration of the exhibition, Liminal Gallery will release a new artwork accompanied by a Q&A with the artist and detail images onto the dedicated Viewing Room found on www.liminal-gallery.com.
