Dancing Roots by Liz DeBellis


“As an artist I like to be challenged and to push myself.  I do not feel satisfied if I simply create something that looks nice.  I am always creating problems to solve such as controlling the way ink spread on a printing plate, or incorporating new colors into my palette.   I want my art to be meaningful not merely aesthetically pleasing.

When I create art I like to work in themes and series.  My artwork is almost exclusively centered around womanhood and the home.  Man’s perspective has dominated visual arts throughout history.  I experience art from a woman’s vantage point, however and that is reflected in the way I express myself.  I like to explore the struggles and roles of women in today’s society.  I am also fascinated by small details and interesting objects that represent womanhood.”
