Liz Nielsen at UNSEEN 2017

Liz Nielsen at UNSEEN AMSTERDAM

 

Danziger Gallery is pleased to be exhibiting at the UNSEEN art fair in Amsterdam with a solo show of new cameraless works by Liz Nielsen.  UNSEEN runs from September 21 until September 24.

Nielsen’s work joins and adds to the historical tradition of the photogram – one of the medium’s earliest processes - but one which has enjoyed a renaissance in the worlds of contemporary art and color photography.

To create her images – largely abstractions based on visual realities -  Nielsen cuts, layers, and assembles transparent color gels into a handmade “negative” and then projects varied light sources onto the photographic paper.  These different lights allow Nielsen to essentially paint onto the paper in broad to narrow strokes. At once visceral and cerebral Nielsen’s pictures express her individual psyche while attempting to tap into universal sources of imagination.
