Liza Corbett

Liza Corbett’s pieces speak of modern fairy tales untold…

From the artist statement:

Liza Corbett’s work contemplates The Summer-Land, the spirit world that lays unseen alongside our own. Liza creates visual narratives populated with otherworldly women and animals, under heavy suns low in hazy, wan skies.

Her subject matter is tinged with the menace of pre-modern life and suffused with an air of melancholy. Influenced by nineteenth-century spiritualism, by Dark Romanticism, by myths, fables and old tales, Liza aims to create images that, like tarot or other methods of divination, suggest a strange and unknowable significance underlying our worldly existence.

    If I was an artist, this is the work I’d do!

  2. Her work makes me think of the movie “The Glass Slippers”, staring Leslie Caron, for some reason. Maybe because of how believable the images are, in spite of the fantasy they depict.

  3. Hauntingly beautiful. Just had a look at her website, and I see she also makes art dolls and ‘creatures’ (my faves are the tattooed swans – would soooo love one of my very own!) -Nx

  4. The top artwork “Cybele” is gorgeous. Ironic, huh, that I have all those animals, including the peacock, although I’ve yet to have a fairytale princess come out of the woods.

    These are stunning. Whimsical with a bit of a dark side. I absolutely love these!

  7. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad
    for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!

  8. Thankfulness to my father who informed me regarding this weblog, this weblog is in fact awesome.
