Artist. Screenprinting/Painting. Paradox Ink
For this exhibition, Intersections, at Read’s Ground Floor Gallery, Liz Squillace will be showing her newest work including a quadriptych that is a hybrid screenprint painting. Each piece is one fourth of the whole, and as they meet at the edges and center the complete vision is revealed. Liz presents this new series with the idea of creating an ocular texture. With a limited palette, she employs the repetition of screenprinting with the originality of painting.
Liz Squillace lives and works in Bridgeport, CT. She earned a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and participated in the copyist program at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She is a City Canvas Grant recipient for a large scale mural at the Bridgeport Train Station and a Regional Initiative Grant recipient for the Painted Stairway of the Broad Street Steps. Liz began a grassroots public art campaign in 2005 transforming utility boxes into works of art in Stamford, CT. She continued the enterprise in Bridgeport completing 50 hand-painted utility boxes including one in Amsterdam. Liz is the owner of Paradox Ink, screenprinting and murals, with a studio/storefront located in the Arcade Mall.
