Lizy Bending

"My theory is based in the realm of the political, artworks have an incredible autonomy and thus, the power to educate. Through my work I want to make issues surrounding politics, society, culture and the economy accessible to all."

Combing print media with the construction of objects, Lizy's practice aims to provoke discussion, using emotive aesthetics that transform socio-political concepts into visually stimulating bodies of work. The artist parallels printmaking with object making, using the prints as coloured and textured drawings before entering them into tangibility. She thus creates sculptural works that redefine the spatial potential of printmaking, to include sculpture, installation and participatory prints.
