Like A Girl Art Exhibition

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

11:00 AM

The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery, East Gallery

Using a variety of painting techniques, artist Lizzie Wortham creates abstracted representations of girlhood. Made up of a combination of washes, layered brushwork and thick impasto, her canvases often play with the rules of pictorial space. Wortham's images are based on her childhood photos, and explore the complex mingling of nostalgia and memory while evoking the vulnerability and unbridled self-absorption of adolescence.
