Liz Gray's Ascension fine art print product

Ascension

"In Ascension, I've painted the moment the underwater swimmer begins her ascent to the surface. She is in the quiet world of cobalt and cerulean blues and the light from the surface of the water streams down into the depths, drawing her upwards. "
Liz Gray's Leap of Faith Fine Art Print Product

Leap of Faith

" "Leap of Faith" was the perfect title with which to start 2022. We all need a bit of faith and determination for a new year. Using water as a metaphor in this work, I've tried to convey the sense of peace that follows a right decision. Sometimes we all have to let go a little and simply take the plunge! "
Liz Gray's Archipelago Girl Fine Art Print Product

Archipelago Girl

"Pop iconography joins forces with Australian wildflowers to create a powerful contemporary work. Set against an ivory black background over a silver underlayer, the Archipelago girl’s gaze is unflinching, as she immerses herself in the wild beauty of the land. "
Liz Gray's Scarlet Opium fine art print product

Scarlet Opium – Canvas

"In Scarlet Opium, I've explored the headiness of a poppy field. By using impasto paint applied by palette knife and freely flowing washes, the work conveys something of the intensity of both the colour and textures asssociated with a poppy field. "

Mixed Pleasures by Gray Fine Art Print product

Mixed Pleasures

"I chose the name for this work to convey my enjoyment of painting a bouquet of Indigenous Australian flowers. The work conveys not only bold form and colour, but also fascinating texture. I painted the flowers against a matt black background, the colour of which drips down over a layer of silver to add a sense of contemporary glamour ."
Liz Gray's Morning Glory fine art print product

Morning Glory

"In Morning Glory, I've juxtaposed impasto paint with thin washes of oil paint, to convey a powerful sensory perception of white peonies. The work portrays both the delicate transluscency of these flowers as well as their complex forms. "
Liz Gray's Iridescence fine art print product

Iridescence

"I'm endlessly fascinated at the play of light on water and on the figure in the water. In this work, I've really enjoyed conveying that sense of colours changing in response to light. The contrast of the deep dark blues with the light-filled viridian greens, highlights the energy of the jump."

Liz Gray- Bio

Liz Gray is an Australian based artist known for her large emotive paintings of the feminine form engaging with nature and most recently her new collection of luscious floral works. Merging representation with abstraction in increasing degrees, she conveys the intensity of sensory experiences. Her dynamic technique combines palette knife applied impasto with colour washes that run freely across the canvas. Liz’s work reflects the impermanence and transient beauty of the world we live in, but hope is always firmly present.

Her collection of women in water is filled with exuberant joy while birds in other works, depict and embody many of humanity’s hopes and dreams.

Liz completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at Rhodes University in South Africa, where she studied under some of the best landscape painters of the country and embraced their large scale, monumental approach to painting. Australia has been her home since 2006 and she is deeply inspired by its unique combination of stark, rugged beauty and exotic tropical features. Her two daughters are often her muses and she regularly photographs them swimming in the pristine West Australian waters and interacting with the fascinating birds and floral beauty.

Liz enjoys working with clients all over the world, and her work hangs in private homes and corporations in Australia, South Africa, Canada, Spain and the United Kingdom. A recent statement from a client captured the essence of a large-scale work, “this piece has given our space a soul”.

She is presently working on a public artwork for the City of Vincent in Perth. The 5.5m work on copper cut-outs will portray figures, flowers and birdlife, interacting and connecting with each other but from a distance, in the spirit of the Covid-19 world.
