Inhumane activities brought us here is a five piece abstract series surrounding social justice issues. Each painting corresponds with an essay that goes in depth regarding the various topics: Privilege, Racism, Environment, Sexism, and Education. This work took a year to complete from research, exploring the topics, writing, and painting.
Basic Space Gallery is pleased to announce Liz Thoresen's featured Exhibit at the gallery for October of 2018.
"The seed for this series was planted while I was a passenger in a car driving through a forest of Ponderosa pines. I have been preoccupied with trees for years but it was only recently that I began to see them as unique sculptures decorating varied and contrasting landscapes. The pines lined the road that day, in a beautiful haphazard manner, and I was inspired to recreate the sense of an intricate forest network. “Forest Web” became the first of my textured paintings. From there, the process took on a life of it’s own and I went from one painting to another with the common thread being that of heavy texture, strong color, and the theme of nature. Nature has always been and remains the main source of my inspiration for painting. The intense color and intricate textures of this series leads the viewer through the paintings to explore surfaces and color changes more deeply. Living in the country, I am reminded daily of natures power and magnificent beauty. I hope to capture some of it’s mystery, vibrancy, atmospheric, and luminous qualities in this series." - Liz Thoresen
