    You are simply talented!!!!!!!

    What a great “movie” – what an amazing place to find stuff! How clever are you to put it all together -I am very very proud of my artist daughter. Your piece is a shocker. Poor birdie. Congratulations Eliza xxx

    i think this is my favorite lomax now.

  4. Hi Liz- Great project but frightening at the same time. I’m going to make this a project for my dimensional illustration classes at RIT during the upcoming year. We have some “Really Good” dumpsters at school! It’s too bad Rochester is so far from Long Island City and Materials for the Arts. However, I think we will manage to find our share of discarded “stuff”.
    Best, Bill

    I love this piece! It is so humorous in its depiction of such a devastating topic and powerful. Once again, Genius!!!

    Gene Hoffman would have gone crazy in a place like this! Too bad he is no longer with us. Thanks Liz

    Liz – Thanks for posting on this show and Materials for the Arts!. Gene Hoffman (my late husband) loved and admired your work! Yep, he would have gone nuts in MFtA…. it would have been HUGE fun to trek with him through there as all kinds of imagery danced through his head while he played and prattled his way down the aisles. Here – out in Colorado – I’ve got colorful pieces of rusted metal and other cast-offs that were in the queue for a spot in one of Gene’s amazing assemblages. I do need to get a website set up for his work – have tons of film images to digitize. Looks like you’re doing fantastic work and receiving well-deserved recognition. Yay!

Last Friday was the opening of EARTH: Fragile Planet, an exhibition at the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in New York. The exhibit showcases 120 of the world’s most accomplished illustrators, giving them a forum to set forth their personal views about the state of the world and the environment. Artists include Julie Bell, Guy Billout, Steve Brodner, Chris Buzelli, Kinuko Y. Craft, Vincent Di Fate, Jody Hewgill, Sterling Hundley, Anita Kunz, Tim O’Brien, Donato Giancola, Ralph Steadman, and many more. I am so happy to be included in this powerful and meaningful show and amongst such legendary artists! One of my favourite artists, Eric Lewis, and I were asked to make our pieces for the EARTH exhibit using supplies we found at Materials for the Arts. Brandon Kieffer filmed and edited our adventure! Watch it below or on youtube.

Thank you for the video Brandon! Thank you to Anelle Miller, Tara Jacoby, Kate Feirtag and all the great people at the Society. Thank you to Greg Manchess and Jack Unruh for curating such an amazing exhibit.

Here is my final piece for the EARTH show…
