Lize is mentally and emotionally constantly involved with the state of the human race
She enjoys working with previous works and prints. By combining and manipulating
them, placing them in different contexts, she tends to achieve surprisingly satisfying
results. This process leads to an innovative way to achieve even more thought-
provoking messages. By working like this, she founds a new way to address her need to
portrait layered realities in one work - nothing is ever what it seems to be...
Her art is mostly focused on Life, Death, Grief, and Hope. Subject matters that people
tend to avoid.
She sometimes has to dig deep into her own psyche, there where she buried pain,
destruction, shock, disbelief and numbness as a reaction to what Life threw at her as a
human being. Lize’s art gives her the key to access those places of grief so that she
could manage to find a new way to function in this world.
By giving structure, adding and then subtracting or destroying some of the elements in
her work, she sometimes finds the meaning she wants to convey.
Life is complex and even more so human nature, experience and emotions. Art gives
her the way to communicate and convey metaphors and symbols in order to put
devastating emotions on paper. By doing that Lize aspires to challenge her audience to
face their own inner world, confront their fears and embrace Life.
She also finds beauty in the sculptural structure that keeps living beings together and
holds it up - as the skeleton. Flowers, birds, skulls, bones, organs, and lace are all
elements that will constantly appear in her work.
