“Approaching Liz Knox’s work needs consideration, thought, time. Knox has honed her own style and painterly language for 35 years or more..............
Her Language is paint and all the techniques, compositional devices and means of expression which fluency in this medium demands. Knox creates personal narratives by painting the objects, places, moods and feelings which surround and envelop her in everyday life. She responds to locale, to atmosphere, to light and colour.”
Giles Sutherland Art critic and writer.
“Liz Knox’s paintings catch the changing light, hour by hour. They respond, whether a raking side light gives us information about the application of the paint itself, or full-on lighting tells us things about the colours and shapes of the composition.
Indeed, they can be highly personal, in the sense that one frequently feels the artist could respond to any question posed by the viewer.
Liz Knox’s subject-matter has meant different things to her, and we bask in the warmth of it.
The paintings would look great as tapestries too!”
William Hardie Art Historian and gallery owner.
