About the Art
What the artist says

Nature has been and always will be an inspiration for Liz’s work.  She is constantly seeing things in her daily routine that beckon to be put on paper.  Treating landscapes and other non-portrait works as if they are portraits has given new definition to her work.

Why we like it

The Cliff Rider is reminiscent of a Victorian silhouette from the 19th century, modernized with a colorful nature scene behind the equine cutout.

Where we hang it

The Cliff Rider works well on either a gallery wall or solo on a shelf.

About the artist

Elizabeth Harkins

The work of Philly based Elizabeth Harkins balances representation with abstraction.  Drawings and paintings of cropped views, canvases filled with lines and color, she abstracts by combining diverse images into one composition or by methodically layering elements of her drawings to the point of transformation.



I aim to derive humor and different meanings from the methodical layering of images and repeated patterns.
