Liz Gray is known to many on the Perth Art and Education scene. She moved to Australia from South Africa in 2006. Her work is usually conducted on a large scale through the luscious medium of oil on canvas. Liz’s honours degree in Fine Art has been a classical foundation on which to move easily between subject matter over the years.
Her work portrays strong women living life to the full; something which she believes she and her young adult daughters have the privilege of doing in their new country. She depicts the experience of being immersed in the pristine, crystalline waters of Western Australia, to her most recent works, where compositions combine mesmerizing faces with doves, magpies and other Australian birds. Liz uses symbolism and deep colour washes; juxtaposing glamour with hints of spirituality; qualities which she admits, make life worth living.
