DESCRIPTION

Writ small is an exhibition and performance series featuring new work by Elizabeth Bisbing.
Bisbing, whose roots and intention are derived from painting, uses hand-painted paper to
construct intimate collages. Using the narrative of a character called “Little Betty Jane”,
Bisbing fabricates wonderful vignettes based on Art historical backdrops, religious
iconography, contemporary culture and personal experience.

Bisbing uses the child character Little Betty Jane as both scapegoat and heroine to bravely
peels through imagined memories. With whimsy and wit, we traverse personal histories often
too painful to hold in our consciousness. These new stories lead us through a familiar but
fabricated world of religious mythology, childhood fantasies and embellished personal
experiences.

“Tea and Cake with Betty Jane” performances
March 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th from 3-4pm at the gallery
