Liz Parkinson’s masksExhibition
These masks begin their lives as part of palm fronds from the Australian Cabbage Tree Palm, which grows in Liz’s garden. From there they undergo a transformation to release the person hidden within. They are cleaned up, painted, varnished and given hair, hats or whatever else is at hand. They are also dressed up with ear-rings and then given perhaps a necklace or beard for a final touch.
Liz is an Australian artist, author, jewellery and mask maker who has been classed as an outsider-artist. Her work has been exhibited in several countries, including her native Australia, Britain, France, Switzerland and Thailand.
Exhibition opening with Liz Parkinson on the 3rd of June at 5:30 p.m
