ELIZABETH CLOSE ARTS

Contemporary Aboriginal Artist and Muralist

Elizabeth is a Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara woman from the APY Lands in Central Australia. Now based in Adelaide, Elizabeth's arts practice has evolved from canvas beginnings to now also include large scale public art and digital design. Elizabeth's work is a unique and distinct fusion of contemporary and traditional Aboriginal Art, using vivid warmth to convey the landscape of the APY while also drawing upon sociopolitical themes of identity, forced removal policies, loss of culture and intergenerational trauma

Public art transcends power and privilege; It takes art off the walls of the wealthy and out of the galleries and tells the story of the community; it challenges ideas and perceptions; it's evocative and it takes bravery on the part of the artist
