Liz West (Sculpture & Environmental Art 2007)

Liz West was born in Manchester, England in 1985. She studied at Glasgow School of Art, where she gained a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art (2004-2007). Since then she has exhibited both nationally and internationally.

Liz West makes intensely coloured installation, video and photographic works from arrangements of found materials and consumer goods. In the 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.

West is interested in the aesthetic of densely packed and richly coloured arrangements and displays found in shops, markets and museums. In her work, she creates sensory experiences in the form of richly saturated installations that immerse the viewer in a kaleidoscopic or optical environment.
