Liz Collins is an artist and designer living in Brooklyn, NY. Employing a range of natural to synthetic materials, incorporating vivid colours, dynamic patterns, emphasizing textures and inventive structures, Collins enjoys pushing the limits and doing the unexpected across the spectrum of textile media. Her artworks surround the viewer in vibrating colour fields to explore the boundaries between painting, fiber arts and installation. The cacophonic play of optics, texture, colour and scale, recreates her wavering experience of the world as a place of stupendous wonder and cosmic energy.
She has had solo exhibitions at the Tang Museum at Skidmore, College, Saratoga Springs, NY; Heller Gallery, New York, NY; the Textile Arts Center, New York, NY; AMP Gallery, Provincetown, MA; AS220 in Providence, RI; and at the Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville, TN. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, NY; the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA; the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, New York, NY; the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee, WI, New Museum, NYC among others.
