Liz Knox: Catto Below

Scottish artist Liz Knox makes a very welcome debut at Catto Below with a show full of vibrant colour and audacious foreshortened compositions.

Liz's speciality is the still-life, usually featuring interesting objects and flowers depicted against a dramatic sky. They're vivid and delightful, of course, but there's also a geometric dimension to the paintings because of the way she plays with perspective.

So at times the work borders on the abstract with all those squares and rectangles piling up on top of each other. And the artist recognises this mathematical slant, which may be why she wittily calls one of them 'Three Times Table'.

Liz may be new to the Catto, but she has been a well-established, award winning painter for 35 years. Currently president of the Paisley Art Institute, she has exhibited widely throughout Britain in group and solo shows.

Recently she appeared as one of the Group 13 Artists in an exhibition called Glasgow Haiku alongside a distinguished group that included another Catto favourite, Annette Edgar. She is a past President of Paisley Art Institute, (2007 – 2010).
