Lizzie Scott
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work looks at the relationships between space, materiality, and visual communication from a perspective informed by feminism and inspired by the urban landscape. I’m interested in the threshold between abstraction and representation, where objects and images elicit an uncanny sense of both recognition and intractable otherness. My current paintings are abstracted images of paper casually taped over different surfaces around the city. The utilitarian impulse to cover a window during construction or to stick a flyer on a wall creates accidental abstractions around the city. At the same time, these mundane objects convey a great deal of narrative. A crumpled and faded sign advertizing guitar lessons tells a story both comically pathetic and movingly heroic. Similarly, papered-over storefronts hint at personal sagas of failed ambition while the faded and torn paper literally functions as abstract collage. My "Sleeping Bags" are abstract paintings and at the same time functional objects. They have no fixed way of being displayed, but can adapt to the needs of different spaces and context.
