About Elizabeth O'Connor
Creating is profoundly ingrained within Elizabeth O’Connor’s DNA. Fuelled by experimentation and
various mediums, her diverse and explorative creative practice embarks on a boundless artistic
odyssey. With the surface as the playground; form, line and colour, together with a stroke of
serendipity, become the conduit for bold, unrestrained, energetic expression.
Colour holds paramount importance for Elizabeth and is the captivating characteristic enveloping
her work. She expresses her deep fascination with colour by orchestrating a symphony of
unconventional colour interactions that infuse vitality and evoke a compelling visual experience.
“Colour is my absolute obsession. I love creating atypical colour combinations and exploring the
relationship between hues and tonal shifts.”
Elizabeth’s sculptural journey embraces the mesmerising allure of transformation, where the
ordinary metamorphoses into extraordinary. Fascinated by the ethereal essence of a seemingly
insignificant object—the crumpled piece of paper, she discovers a metaphorical portal in which to
explore the complexities of its humble existence. Within the folds of the mundane, an unpretentious
aesthetic lies concealed. Using the force of her own body weight, she coaxes the metal sheet to
surrender its two-dimensional rigidity, hand guiding it into the realm of multidimensionality to reveal an alluring, three-dimensional sculptural embodiment of bold, minimalist form. The interplay of light and shadow unveils the ephemeral dance of transience and permanence, evoking emotions that
surpass the limitations of words. Each intricate fold, crinkle and contour suggests its own
whispered narrative – an invitation for the viewer to engage with the work and witness the silent
dialogue between form and function, chaos and order, fragility and resilience.
Holding a Bachelor of Visual Arts from QUT, Elizabeth has utilised her inherent entrepreneurial
characteristics and built an extensive and rewarding career in the arts, interiors and fashion
industries. She finds inspiration through extensive travels and thrives on collaborative endeavours
spanning diverse creative disciplines and mediums. Residing in Brisbane, her work can be found in
both corporate and private collections. Artist influencers encompass a wide spectrum and include
Pierre Soulages, Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline, Mark Rothko, Cy Twombly, Ellsworth Kelly, Henri
Matisse (especially his paper cuts), Clement Meadmore and John Chamberlain.
