Lizzy Mooney

Currently my areas of focus are the elements Earth, Air Fire and Water; their interactions with each other, the clashes and collaborations with the manmade world and their role in my exploration of the unity between spirit and matter.

My choice of materials is often key to understanding the focus of works; how materials are gathered and prepared can itself change initial desired outcomes. For example using hand tools when working with green wood enables me to either clash or collaborate with the material, to inflict my desire or to feel the true nature of the piece.

Through sculpture I experience the work as I make it; through paint and print I create to experience the outcome myself as much as for others.
