Liz Bestic

Artist’s Statement

My work is largely abstract and tends to have a visceral, textural quality. I often used themes and narratives as a starting point particularly in my acrylic and watercolour paintings.

My printmaking practice tends to focus on etching and collographs inspired by landscape although recently I have been exploring urban landscape using Solar Plate etching with some good results.

I like to experiment with new techniques and recently was asked to contribute to a German exhibition in aid of refugees entitled Palimpsest. I used paper lamination to produce two 130cm long pieces of work on thin, white voile.

I love working outdoors and escape to the wilds of Northumberland when I can. Recently I have been working on a series of watercolours painted directly in the landscape.
