DESCRIPTION

“With paint and patina, cast bronze can be made to look eerily like an array of things – from wicker canning to flower buds – with almost indexical texture: this is nothing but the starting point of mimesis as a mode of abstraction, which Craft finesses almost to the extreme of nonrepresentation. She removes the “safeties,” risking the presentation of stuff specific, familiar, and yet uncannily off…”
Bruce Hainley, catalogue essay for Liz Craft monograph, Halle für Kunst, published by JPR|Ringier, 2006
