Gallery333, Exeter Phoenix 14 January – 8 March

Opening next week, Liz West will be presenting new work at Gallery333 (part of Exeter Phoenix’s multi art-form venue).

An Additive Mixture is a continuation of West’s new site-specific series where she systematically arranges numerous multicoloured fluorescent stick-lights as a direct response to details in the space. The title of work is taken from Josef Albers text ‘Interaction of Colour’, where it is explained that a direct mixture of projected light demonstrates an additive mixture where the sum of all colours in light is white.

Quays Culture, Salford Spring 2014

Liz West will be re-interpreting the recent work Vanishing Boundaries for Quays Culture at MediaCityUK, Salford in the Spring. This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase work in an alternative environment to be seen be audiences of thousands, including the home of the BBC.

Further information about this exhibition, curated by Mark Devereux Projects, will be announced very soon via markdevereuxprojects.com

This year a reference book featuring Liz West, The Language of Mixed-Media Sculpture by Jac Scott, will be published by The Crowood Press. This volume is both a global survey and a celebration of contemporary approaches to sculpture formed from more than one material. It profiles the discipline in all its expanded forms: illustrating that sculpture in twenty first century is not something solid and static but rather a fluid interface in material, time and space.

This sumptuously illustrated volume will inspire those intrigued and interested in contemporary sculpture. Suitable for all artists, enthusiasts, students and practitioners alike, the book will form an invaluable guide to the great plethora of twenty-first century art.
