LIZ INGRAM

"The meaning  of these paintings is not meant to be found  in the beauty of the paint or image.  Rather, it is in the demands the images make on the viewer."
ARTIST'S STATEMENT​​

"Her work represents an attempt to re-awaken our fundamental connections and our oneness with nature, and our awareness of the elemental aspect of water to all life forms."
 
The human body and the elemental in nature are recurring sources for Ingram’s art practice, which investigates transitional states between material presence and the ephemeral, and issues relating to the fragility of life and the environment. In an attempt to reawaken an understanding of our fundamental connections with nature, she is currently using images of glistening water and the human body, focusing on a specific lake site in the Alberta boreal forest. With the aid of the printed image, paper and ink, glass, light, shimmering pixels and fabric, she wishes to give the viewer an experience that will tap childhood memories of the sensation of playing in water, and will celebrate the wonder of this endangered and essential substance. Her work represents an attempt to re-awaken our fundamental connections and our oneness with nature, and our awareness of the elemental aspect of water to all life forms.
