Creating Art, Creating Meaning

Artist Statement

Creating my abstract paintings is a mysterious and mystical process, based in the reflections of the world around me, and a deep need to give voice to universal, deep and lasting truths. As I start sweeping water-suspended pigment onto the surface, I “let go” and allow myself to be guided through the process of mark making, desiring to pour my soul in to my paintings. Some of these paintings take mere days to finish whereas others may take years to complete. They contain many layers, mimicking the layers of time passing, leaving its marks on the world, and on our being. Circles often make appearances in my artwork, representing the energy in the world, and lines appear as a metaphor for the passage of time and the meandering journey of life. With the swirling together of shape, line, and luminous layers of color, a strong dreamy feeling exudes from each painting, inviting an emotional connection with the viewer.

Biography

Liz Lautrup is an Abstract Artist who has been obsessed with beauty, nature, and painting since she was a young child. While growing up in New Jersey, she studied painting with famous painter John Osborne during Middle school. John made a great impression on her with his artistic talent, passion for art and nature, and instilling in her the belief that she could make a living doing her art. She went on to study Studio Art at Hamilton College in New York State. Here she discovered ceramics, figure drawing and more painting. Liz fell in love with free form ceramics which began fostering her love of Abstract thinking. After a corporate career and birthing two children, she experienced health issues and a spiritual wake-up call which led her to her intuitive painting process.

Liz is a proud member of SYNC Gallery in Denver Colorado and has found herself, in the last six years, exhibiting in numerous solo shows, and completing many commissioned paintings.

Currently she is completing paintings for clients, and creating new, big, artworks for her next upcoming show.
