ABOUT THE WORK
Liz Markus paints in series, allowing intuition and collectively gathered cultural influences to guide her process. Images are relayed to canvas through bold and colorful washes of acrylic paint, resulting in forms that are familiar yet liberated in their rawness. Simultaneously liquid and solid, subversive and reverent, Markus playfully explores the visceral undertones of American subculture. We are proud to present T-Rex with Aura, a hand-embellished series from Markus' ongoing exploration of the iconic mass-produced T-Rex costume.
Liz Markus has a forthcoming 2021 solo exhibition at The Pit (Los Angeles) and a current solo exhibition at Unit London. Previous solo shows have been held at Maruani Mercier Gallery (Brussels), Nathalie Karg (New York), White Columns (New York), and Loyal Gallery (Stockholm) among others. Selected group exhibitions include showings at Tripoli Gallery (East Hampton), Harper’s Books (East Hampton), Eric Firestone Gallery (East Hampton), and Canada (New York). Museum exhibitions include presentations at The Reece Museum (Tennessee) and Nerman Museum (Kansas City). Markus lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
