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.
