Portsmouth-based artist Liz Pounsett bridges the gap between collage, photography and urban art. Her work often explores the relationship between analogue collage and digital. Working mainly in collage, she combines her own photographs, found images and pages from second-hand books. Liz’s work has even incorporated David Hockney’s iconic painting, Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy. After asking him for permission, she created a large, one-off piece. In another mashup (and with the permission of his daughter) Liz uses the stunning photos of Slim Aarons to create a serene and evocative poolside setting.
After studying graphic design and then art, Liz went on to pursue a career in teaching. She currently teaches, part-time, and manages the art curriculum. Liz splits her week between teaching and studio time.
Recent exhibitions include the Truman Brewery and the Oxo Tower Wharf London at Roy’s Art Fair. Artist collaborations include Dave Buonaguidi -aka Real Hackney Dave and Noah Jones -aka Background Bob.
Liz’s work is in private collections throughout the UK and she has sold to collectors in Europe, the USA and Asia. Collectors of Liz’s work include actress Helena Bonham Carter.
