The starting point for this exhibition by Victorian Artist Liz Blizzard is her fascination with stories about her great grandmother, Kate Herry — both family stories and information she has uncovered, including child abuse, insanity and Women’s Suffrage. She has then reflected on stories about pioneering women that have been forgotten or ignored, and painted a series of works about these and their families.

 

Liz Blizzard studied at Prahran Institute and taught at University of Ballarat. She is fascinated by the diversity, colour and vastness of the Australian landscape and her paintings are an emotional response to it, reflecting its energy and strength. Her work has been exhibited worldwide from Russia, Korea, Japan to Singapore and in Australia.
