Liz Markus

Drawing from her experience as a Gen Xer, Liz Markus’ paintings channel the raw exuberance of punk and grunge. The artist uses bold, colorful washes of acrylic paint on unprimed canvas along with her distinctive mark-making to bring viewers into a world of dinosaurs, cavemen and hippies. Embracing the work of Color Field and Pop Art painters, Markus’ paintings combine figuration with abstraction in a playful world of vibrant color and submerged meaning.
