NORTH WEST DRAWING COLLECTIVE
Liz Collini works as a fine artist making language-based drawings, prints and installations. Drawing is essential to the 'constructed' visual language works I make. These drawings at first look like technical drawings. However, the measurements, notes and annotations directly refer to their construction by hand and to the errors and difficulties inherent in their production, exposing what is usually hidden. This in turn links to the idea that language is something which we ourselves, as human beings, create. Drawing in this way has many significant aspects for my practice; it reaches beyond the screen back to the hand; it questions meaning as something fixed, and it refers to traditional aesthetics of plans, patterns and blueprints.
