Q + A: Elizabeth Creixell

ELIZABETH CREIXELL CAPTURES THE AUSTRALIAN LANDSCAPE WHILST IN TRANSIT, RECORDING FLEETING AND OFTEN DISJOINTED MOMENTS.

Talk us through your practice…

My practice explores journey, mapping and place through contemporary printmaking. I produce bold impressions of rural and suburban sites seen in passing whilst in transit. These print-based works take the form of semi abstracted landscapes to convey an evocation of place. I am inspired by the graphic qualities the Australian landscape offers, which is expressed through line, shape and mark making.

When did your love affair with art begin?

Throughout my childhood I often drew and was curious about the world around me. Growing up, my family home was filled ceramics and engravings originating from different countries in Latin America. I have always enjoyed looking at them. They helped me feel more connected to my roots.

What can we take away from your work?

My aim for the viewer is to partake in the journey with me. Reigniting a sense of curiosity and wonder about the world around us.

What’s coming up next?

Lately I’ve been working towards a body of work which will be displayed in the National Art School’s post-graduate exhibition in February 2021, which continues my exploration of semi-abstracted landscapes to evoke place.
