Liz Gray’s contribution to Covid
Well-known artist Liz Gray has been occupied with a 5m copper artwork over the last few months, and it was very exciting to see it eventually installed on-site a few weeks ago. The public artwork, titled “Connections”, has been hung in the City of Vincent’s main administration block in Leederville/ West Australia.
Last year Liz was a successful applicant in the City of Vincent’s COVID-19 Arts Relief Grant funding initiative, and through the opportunity created a work that depicts various characters in and common to Vincent. Using technologies at times, people, their pets, and the indigenous birds of the area connect during the pandemic. Various residents of the City posed for the work, including well-known Jeff Michael from Noongar Radio. During a very trying time in the world, I wanted to depict the positive connections which help maintain our mental health and well-being.
After designing the work, copper sheets were cut by a water jet. I painted the cut-outs, using oil paint and added further surface interest with an engraver. It was a fantastic project to work on from start to finish as copper is such a beautiful substrate to work on. Aside from its obvious luminescent qualities, even thin layers of oil paint have vibrant intensity because the paint doesn’t sink into fibers as it does on canvas, so you have to do less work to get it looking good.
