Through Hardships to the Stars
A Liz Strick exhibition
An exhibition built from willpower, ambition and the will to survive: the true source of inner strength.
Liz Strick: “I live for painting. My paintings are my life.”
Liz Strick could never have known the extent to which these words would become a reality. In 2013 her life changed completely after receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer and then succumbing to heart failure and a stroke. The stroke brought permanent partial paralysis of her left hand as a result in 2014. In 2015 she fractured her hip.
After five heavy years of rehab and physiotherapy eventually THE ART OF LIZ STRICK appeared. It brought her back to life. Art could be used as a form of therapy!
Liz has always worked from her feelings. Her current work is expressionist in its design. (In the past it was more impressionistic, her landscapes in oil).
The willpower to create a form of cooperation between both hands was an incentive for the brain: ‘miraculous’ abstract works could arise in the form of paintings on paper with mixed techniques and a characteristic fine line play. There were also various collages.

*Response/feedback to exhibition :
Direct Left Power
“A short while back I visited Liz Strick’s Plan B home exhibition.
I first met Liz at the 2013 ZomerExpo and had not seen her since, though we kept in touch via e-mail. She has had some issues in her life and has had to re-invent herself, both personally and as an artist. One major setback was the loss of the use of one hand to work with, which, certainly for an artist, is a rather crippling disability.
Against all the odds she has started re-using her paralysed hand and has produced some stunning and very moving works with it. I remember having to draw with my ‘wrong’ hand during my years at the academy. It forces you to look and draw more precisely, not relying too much on your routine. For Liz, this must be the same experience and she not only copes very well, the resulting works are awesome indeed! So much so that I could not resist buying one of them.
I whole-heartedly invite any visitors to this site to call on Liz and make an appointment to come and see her work. Be gentle with her, give her all your patience and buy her work. You will not regret it!”

Work-, gallery-, and storage-spaces spread out over 2 floors, so that the paintings can be comfortably viewed at all times. Because a large part of my work, with the exception of work on paper, can be seen online, you can easily make a pre-selection of your favourites, and email the list to me in advance. In this way I can have all your favorites ready for viewing when you plan a studio visit.
Commissions welcome. Gallery and studio are open upon request.
