Liz West Needs Your Help
SPONSOR AN ARTIST TODAY
I am a Manchester based visual artist working towards my first solo exhibition ‘Chroma’ due to take place at BLANKSPACE, Manchester in July this year (5 – 29th July). A Special Edition accompanying exhibition catalogue will also be produced, limited to just 100 copies. The exhibition will include a number of large-scale, ambitious, site-specific installations, made especially for this show.
I am seeking funding towards the development and cost of materials for this ambitious project… that’s where you come in! I have some exciting rewards to offer if you decide to fund my project including Limited Edition photographic prints, signed postcards and studio visits (visit the link above).
I make intensely coloured installation, video and photographic works from arrangements of found materials and consumer goods. In my work, objects are densely arranged in orders or enclosed within constructed spaces, such as cupboards and shelves or in containers such as shopping trolleys and cabinets to form compacted colour masses or gradations. I create sensory experiences in the form of richly saturated installations that immerse the viewer in a kaleidoscopic or optical environment.
I need your help to make this happen. This money will help provide me with a brilliant opportunity and platform to showcase my artwork to a wider audience through the exhibition and publication. Chroma will be an exciting event and exhibition for all to attend; including themed workshops, artist tours and talk.
Please help spread the word by sharing the Facebook and Twitter links to anyone you think might be interested in funding this exciting project.
