Driftwood Salon presents: LIZ MAMORSKY, A 50 Year Retrospective

CLOSING RECEPTION SATURDAY DEC 17TH, 6-9 PM

We are pleased to announce our newest featured artist, the multifaceted Liz Mamorsky. In the last half century, Liz has been successfully creating
sculptures, paintings, and drawings that have been exhibited all over the
country.  On Saturday Nov. 19th, we invite you to join us in celebrating
her amazing journey as we showcase an array of her paintings, sculptures
and drawings from 1961 to 2011!
 
“My paintings, which are a totally right-brain function, evolve from a
tangle of brush marks, spills and splatters, randomly applied to the
stretched canvas, obliterating the oppressive whitespace. Creatures emerge, morph, vanish and reappear. I try to hold on to the strongest ones and rough them in. I develop the cast of characters by glazing in thin coats of oil and medium, ultimately creating a luminous surface.
 
With sculpture, form determines function. A new object arrives and sparks
an idea of what it will become, joined with materials that may have been
lying around the studio for years. I love dismantling machines and finding
the treasures within — the interior landscape.
 
Drawing is somewhere between painting and sculpture, Instead of making
marks on the amate bark, I find the forms within the texture of the bark
and pull them out, carving the space with my pencil.
 
All three disciplines, i.e. painting, sculpture and drawing, are exciting
areas in which to work. There is never any down time — no blockage. The
only problem is finding the time to do it all.”
