    Liza Giles

    B. 1971  United Kingdom

    1994 BA Hons Fine Art & Printed textile design Liverpool John Moores University

    Liza lives and works in London and her paintings are included in private collections worldwide including, USA, Japan, Russia, Europe, Hong Kong,  New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, South Africa, China, Peru and UK.

    Liza’s paintings communicate directly through the use of colour, shape, composition and scale, offering a  visual language which draws inspiration from her surroundings. Urban form and architectural landscapes are distilled to convey their subliminal impact, presence, essence or emotion.


    Born from the constraints of a small studio, Liza uses multiple canvases, joined to create large scale works.  Spontaneous brush strokes are painted on raw canvas panels, switched around and reconfigured to create new and unexpected yet coherent compositions.  Hard lines and edges contrast with free, instinctive painterly mark-making, creating tension between shapes and a play between positive and negative space.


    ‘My works are driven by an impetus to ‘switch off’ and re-engage with our instinct, an insistent, inexplicable voice within us that communicates an emotion or feeling .  In our technological and fast-paced world, it is increasingly vital we don’t render ourselves blind to that deep primal aptitude and visual language, so often drowned out by the noise around us’.


    Each piece will have a different meaning to the viewer, speaking to an individual in a unique way. ‘I want my art to feel approachable, harmonious  and engaging,  speaking honestly to its observer in a pure and simple way.  My work is less about how it makes you think, but essentially how it makes you feel’. 

    Mixed media works....

    These works are multi layered using pumice paint, distressed papers, worn card on raw linen or wood board. The fragility of worn materials set against pure pigment colour are used to create highly textured and contrasting compositions with a play between old and new.
