Test Residency 5
We're pleased to announce that painter Lizzy Langford will be staying at Pasture for a week from the 8th August. She'll be exploring the meadows and local flora, looking at making dyes and pigments for paintmaking. Her practice centres around using traditional methods of extracting pigments from earth and plant matter. Lizzy's paintings suggest another way of seeing and engaging with the natural world, in the action of painting, in movement and process, between the site of the pigment and the site of the studio.
Her personal motivations are to draw attention to the current global crisis, working with organic matter to discuss unrelenting growth in the name of “progress” and humanities consequential dissociation from nature.
Lizzy was born in the UK and is currently based in Ibiza. She spent four years after graduating learning traditional methods of extracting colour from plant and earth matter, which her current practise readdresses in an attempt to reveal something previously overlooked in the sole pursuit of pigment.
