Sunday mornings are great for drinking coffee or tea in your pyjamas while listening to ICA-Belgium’s online Colour Talks!
On Sunday May 23rd 2021 at 10h till 11h CET our guest was the British artist Liz West. Her broad body of work encompasses site-specific installations, sculpture, and wall-based artwork, all vivid environments that mix luminous colour and radiant light.
Liz West is a British artist who graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2007. West’s broad body of work encompasses site-specific installations, sculpture, and wall-based artwork.
West creates vivid environments that mix luminous colour and radiant light. West aims to provoke a heightened sensory awareness in the viewer through her works. She is interested in exploring how sensory phenomena can invoke psychological and physical responses that tap into our own deeply entrenched relationships to colour. West’s investigation into the relationship between colour and light is often realised through an engagement between materiality and a given site. Our understanding of colour can only be realised through the presence of light. By playing and adjusting colour, West brings out the intensity and composition of her spatial arrangements.
West has been commissioned worldwide by institutions and organisations including Natural History Museum, National Trust, National Science and Media Museum, London Design Festival, Natural England, Allied London, Grosvenor, British Land, Salford University, Leftcoast, Allenheads Contemporary Arts and Bristol Biennial. West’s work has been included in exhibitions at St Albans Museum + Gallery, University of Hertfordshire, Chester Cathedral, Compton Verney, Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces, Cornerhouse, Brunel University, Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre, UK Young Artists and Royal British Society of Sculptors in the UK, as well as internationally in Hyvinkää, Bangalore, Milan, Dubai, Paris, Berlin and New York. Permanent works are sited in London, Manchester and Bury. Her work has been widely published including by Wallpaper*, FRAME Magazine, The Creator’s Project, Design Boom, Huffington Post, Colossal, Thames & Hudson, Gingko Press, The World of Interiors, The Times, The Guardian and The Independent.
