Liz Brizzi Mixed Media Paintings Brooklyn

Liz Brizzi‘s mixed media paintings start life as photographs of desolate industrial neighbourhoods in LA. To portray the beauty of these forgotten places Brizzi first manipulates the original photos and collages them onto acrylic painted wood panels to which she applies layers of colourful acrylic washes.

Having started creating almost hyper real compositions – that remind me of Edward Hopper in a strange way – her present work is more concerned with the architecture itself, the focus on the structural details of the buildings and places she photographs. The result is a series of works that are far more graphically complex and more in tune with the street art of the very city she paints, represents in her pictures.

Here’s what she has to say about her work:

I try to capture and share the beauty I see in these desolated and mysterious areas that are unknown to even some of the born and raised Angelenos.
