Lizzie Lilley's current practice centres around a responsive process of slow abstraction of photographic imagery. Images are distilled into shape and form, through an instinctive process focussed on colour and texture, transforming, and interrogating the image whilst retaining something of its essence. An essential element of her practice is small drawn studies, usually made in coloured pencil and informed by one or more of the source images. Restricted palettes are an important tool, which are determined by an unconscious repetitive process. The interplay of colour and texture somewhat overtakes the subject matter of the original imagery.
