Liz Nielsen

New York, US

For Liz Nielsen (b.1975, USA), the darkroom is both a deeply contemplative space and an important physical site of production. Whilst the artist has explored a multitude of more conventional methods, she has slowly gravitated towards various cameraless processes, placing paramount importance on the enticing effects of light and its fluctuating results. Abstraction is at the core of Nielsen’s work. By creating her own unique negatives from found objects, she constructs distinctly idiosyncratic and colourful representations of light that engage our imagination.
