Liza Lou


Best known for her ambitious sculptural installations like Kitchen and Backyard, Liz Lou creates work with luminous patterned surfaces that appear to be a type of painting, but are actually full size rooms completely covered in glass beading. Liza Lou’s work embraces the American visionary tradition simultaneously operating as conceptual and craft. In 2002 Lou had an exhibition titled Testimony at Deitch Projects, New York, and received the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship . That was followed by a solo show at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris in 2004, and most recently an exhibition with White Cube in London this past spring. A feature article was written about the exhibition on The Guardian Unlimited.
