Quirky Fox: Art + Framing

From an artistic interest in the consideration of emotion, Liz Gridley’s work centres on her experiences of states of hyper-emotion. Distress arises from overstimulation; feelings of overwhelm from external stimuli that cause a physical response in the body. Meditation or contemplative thought regulates this response and re-centres the body. Gridley’s work reflects these internal states represented in contemporary realist portraits that connect viscerally with the viewer.

Gridley’s passion for oil painting has developed to include the use of contemporary surfaces. The reflective appeal of aluminium panels allow the viewer to influence the work by changing reflections visible through the transparent paint layers; Gridley also paints on hardwood surfaces which juxtapose the yielding nature of the human body, with the unyielding wood.

Gridley had her debut solo exhibition ‘Empathy, My Witness’ in 2018 at Off The Kerb Gallery following her Major Prize win at the Graeme Hildebrand Art Prize in 2017. She has been a Finalist in a number of awards including the Kennedy Art Prize, Cliftons Art Prize, the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize (USA), and the fortyfive downstairs Emerging Art Prize. Gridley has recently completed art residencies, public art demonstrations, and mentored other emerging artists.

Gridley is currently working from her studio in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia).
