Upon meeting Liz Miller in February, I immediately could sense her eccentric, creative nature that parallels her artwork. Liz Miller creates these huge mixed media installations that are simply astounding. Her building material: felt. Her pieces look so delicate like paper, yet the felt cutouts jut out and interlock so methodically. Through the abstract repeating shapes, her installations create this otherworldly sense about them.
I was excited for Teen Art Lounge the following week, but wondering how this whole felt thing was going to work out. Liz just let us have a go with the heaps of colored felt, and, to my amazement and wonder, electric scissors. Our communal piece turned out beautifully as it joined so many differing interpretations on how to manipulate the felt as a material. For all of you out there who missed meeting Liz at Teen Art Lounge you should really check out her installations on her website!
