Liz Gray

South African by birth, Liz Gray now lives and works in Perth, Australia. Her Honours degree in Fine Art has been a classical foundation on which to move easily between subject matter over the years. Liz focuses on large contemporary works in oils on canvas. Her arresting works combine technical skill with a certain enticing glamour. Liz portrays women, either solitary or with others and explores their connectedness to environments, both real and imaginary. Her females are often found in the pristine waters of Australia, where light reflects on peachy skin tones and viridian washes cast shadows. Women interact with exotic bird-life and others simply enjoy each other in frivolous conversation. Liz juxtaposes glamour with hints of spirituality, qualities which she admits make life worth living. Her dynamic, captivating works hang in private and corporate collections in Australia, South Africa, U.K. and Canada. Liz also regularly works on commission for particular spaces.
