Liz Markus’s work is largely informed by her experience growing up as a Gen X, influenced by the rawness of punk, grunge music and the culture of the era. Her process is immediate and intuitive, employing bold and colourful washes of acrylic paint over raw canvas, but often returns to key visual reference points such as dinosaurs, hippies, cavemen, monsters and depictions of fashion. Markus’s artworks are motivated by the conflict between psychological repression and liberation, a theme that pervades her work.
