Elizabeth Couzins-Scott

Profile

Elizabeth creates objects using clothing and accessories to express ideas concerning contemporary anxieties.

Elizabeth is inspired by the dark side of experimental fashion design whose more conceptual designers have explored the symbolic and cultural meaning of consumer culture and contemporary anxieties. The interpretation of these themes by modern historians like Caroline Evans by way of mythology, identity and gender allows her to develop ideas into imagery using articles of clothing and accessories. During a recent residency she has been able to experiment with photo silkscreen techniques and has created a series of figurative work using dolls clothes and faces. This work discusses the current obsession for women to buy into the impossible beauty myth and the increased numbers of young women seeking cosmetic surgery procedures.
