Inspired by Moorish architecture and Byzantine mosaics, New York artist Liz Quisgard creates a Thousand and One Nights vision though embroidered, abstract tapestries as well as columns. The artist refers to her work in fiber as “pseudo pointillism” that combines the discipline of creating painstaking patterns and heavily structured designs with bright, jewel-like colors. Her work does not attempt to communicate anything beyond visual delight: “My goal is to surprise and engage the mind by seducing the eye. The visual arts are exactly that: visual. No meanings, No preachments. No symbols.” Liz has exhbited at the Chicago Art Institute, the Cocoran Gallery, and the Baltimore Museum of Art as well as numerous galleries and other museums nationwide.
