Liz West - On Brown & Violet Grounds

On Brown & Violet Grounds is a new body of works by Liz West exploring her fascination with exuberant colour, sculptural form and intense light. Alongside a series of new light-based installations, West will also be exhibiting works on paper for the first time.

Using un-conventional industrial and man-made materials, such as: electrical tape, aluminium and mirror, these pieces echo many of the materials utilized within her installation work. West’s two-dimensional explorations are driving new ideas within her practice and signal an important development from the successful colour-drenched Chamber series.


Coinciding with The Manchester Contemporary, On Brown & Violet Grounds has been produced as a result of Liz West’s research and development award from Arts Council England. Further works on paper will be exhibited within West’s studio as part of this year’s Rogue Open Studios.
