Liza Giles @ Flowers Gallery
9 February 2023 - 11 March 2023
Liza Giles’ large-scale abstract paintings combine a hard-edge approach to line and composition with intuitive mark-making, incorporating expressive gestures amid rigorous formal structures.
Her painting style developed from making smaller collages using found scraps and painted cut-outs. The monumental canvases seen in this exhibition begin with elemental forms that emerged from these collages, transforming the interplay of positive and negative forms through scale and painterly means of expression. At times appearing architectural, the paintings suggest the immensity and solidity of the urban skyline, while harmonious earth tones and feathered edges integrate a sense of light and space.
