Liz London's artwork explores the realms and depths of her own inner transformation by identifying and creating her own personal archetypes, historical and mythological symbols and stories through layered abstractions as a part of her painting process.
Her art pieces are assembled during her stream of consciousness as a "creative enigma" as some people often label being in the 'zone.'
This process radiates though all aspects of her life as she documents by using items identified her as deeply symbolic, intuitive and metaphysical. London considers herself an transcendental abstract impressionist artist and the painting being most importantly about composition, form, shape, and colors much like her predecessors during the Transcendental Painting Movement. (New Mexico (1938-1942)
Blending different levels of paint with mixed media, her artwork provides visual form honoring what is often perceived as ordinary throughout day-to-day lives. London transforms seemingly mundane human experiences into profound significance, such as coincidences becoming synchronicity and serendipitous opportunities to grow and learn. London states, 'My art is like a 3-D puzzle, as I work to fit the layers and pieces together it is transforming and transcendent me to another time and place.'
As inspiration London often uses photography, found objects, and paper from explorations throughout her travels, memories of dreams, vivid imaginings, and inner journeys. She captures forgotten, abandoned landscapes, and figurative poses, combined with symbolic representations from all over the world and across time. What is hidden or partially revealed in her work is just as important as what is seen, much like the excavation of an ancient civilization that may provide a clue or a lost link reconnecting us to question our lives for meaning through spirit, God, faith on our individual path.
By including discarded personal detritus or found objects on surfaces, London evokes a sense of personal, civilizations, nature or earth's history. Her intention is to question or incite new ideas within the viewer that may alter their current stream of consciousness. In each painting or sculpture, what is left behind is a reoccurring theme or symbol in the work, something that is missing within, a clue or a puzzle that beckons to be found. Fictional landscapes recall the passage of time and create a mysterious, surreal, and emotional sense of place.
Ms London states, 'The art I create is not meant to be literally narrative. It is left open to individual's interpretation and hopefully self discovery.'
'My hope is they will connect at some level or identify some of their personal symbols, memories, or dreams when viewing my work, London continues, I am consistently learning through my art process that it is continued exploration, involving a mystery and an ever evolving personal self-discovery' says London....
