As the title implies, Liz’s work seems liberated from artistic restraint. A free flow of bold colours creates a striking composition. The vibrancy of the piece needs room to breathe, so I see it hung in a white-walled contemporary home. Playing on the more subdued tones in the work, I would use natural oak floors and sofas in a Khaki wool. Blend with swivel-based arm chairs in yellow velvet and cushions in a bleached denim.

Liz combines so many different hues and tones here. The work reads as a sense of individual forms uniting, diverse, yet working together in harmony. The two silhouettes of birds flying convey freedom and growth. This work would look spectacular in a school or hospital, providing the audience with a sense of peace in what could have been a chaotic composition.
