Elizabeth Creixell’s work explores journey, mapping and place through contemporary printmaking. She creates impressions of rural, suburban and domestic sites whilst in transit. Prints take the form of semi-abstracted landscapes to convey an evocation of place. She is intrigued by the graphic qualities of rugged landscapes which are expressed through line and texture. This rough evocation of land is reflected through her mark-making. She has since developed into collage. As an artist Elizabeth seeks to better identify herself in these surroundings.
Elizabeth was born in Florida and moved to Sydney in 2004. She is currently completing her Master of Fine Art at the National Art School. She is a semi-finalist for the Tony White Memorial Art Prize (2020). She was a finalist for the Lloyd Rees Memorial Youth Art Award in 2019 and was the recipient of the Sydney Olympic Park Residency Award in 2018.
