Psychologically There

The opening was a great success!
The gallery during installation.

The Opening! 
I took these photos with an ipod so images are degraded. I'm minding the Gallery on wednesday and I'll bring my real camera and take more photos. Over 200 attended throughout the evening.

Below is my artist statement and photo of my work 
(take a better one with more detail on Wednesday when I go in to the gallery)

Elizabeth Anderson, "Slippage"

Art is an expression of human experience, which is extremely personal while at the same time a reflection of collective history. Painting is a way of slowing down the fast pace of our technological age and all its consequences. The exploration of wax medium is a way of registering the subtle layers beneath the surface of conscious awareness. My body has spanned across from a time when technology was mechanical and digital was mostly imaginary. Mixing digital and painting is a metaphor for the late modernity of living in our time or how to make sense of the world without going mad.


  1. Really like your work and the comment is so apt for our time.

  2. Thanks Liz. I've taken some better photos with a real camera lol. I'll put them up over the weekend. And maybe I'll get the video up from the spring student show.

  3. LOVE your new blog outfit.
    And your piece of art is something
    The brick wall in the gallery,
    haven't seen like that before!

  4. it is great to see all this ! really. and I liked the artist statement too.

  5. Congratulations, Elizabeth. "Slippage" looks fabulous, so layered, making me search for the real person beneath. Very apt artist's statement.

    And what a great opening! You must have been so excited. And justifiably proud.
