Liz Atlas lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her BA in Anthropology from SUNY Binghamton, and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. For many years she worked three dimensionally, with a variety of materials, however, in the last five years, she has shifted her practice to focus primarily on painting. Her work has been exhibited in galleries in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York, as well as abroad, most recently in France, online and in NY.

Artist Statement

“My work is about an off-kilter, intuitively unfolding narrative of color/shape/line/gesture, in which divergent perspectives attempt to co-exist in the same time and space—the ever present tension of reality being one thing, and another, and the attempt to hold both in one moment.”
