Join super/collider for an evening with Liz West – a visual artist who creates vivid environments that mix luminous colour and radiant light.
Working across a variety of mediums, West’s work explores how sensory phenomena can invoke psychological and physical responses that tap into our deeply entrenched relationships to colour. Her practice involves playfully refracting light through space, using translucent, transparent and reflective materials, which direct the flow of natural and artificial light provoking a heightened sensory awareness in the viewer.
In this talk, Liz will explain how her artistic investigations into the nature of perception have revealed that our understanding of colour can only be realised through the presence of light.
Liz West graduated from BA (Hons) Fine Art Sculpture & Environmental Art at Glasgow School of Art in 2007. She regularly exhibits nationally and internationally including at: Bristol Biennial; Natural History Museum, London; Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces, Manchester; Royal British Society of Sculptors, London; National Media Museum, Bradford.
