Liz Parkinson, The Tangled Garden
Liz Parkinson is a Port Hope artist who is interested in how we construct identity and order memory through choices in the things we gather around us. Through the collection, categorization and display of representations of the natural world she considers the stories we tell ourselves about our lives and our environment.
Liz’s MEGA print is part of her current project The Tangled Garden and is composed as a 19th century tapestry that imagines an ideal Port Hope garden forever flowering and fruiting.
Liz’s prints are in public and private collections including The Canada Council Art Bank, External Affairs Canada, The Federal Business Development Bank, The Toronto Stock Exchange, The Canadian Securities Commission, The Tom Thomson Gallery, The Whitby Station Gallery and The Art Gallery of Northumberland. She has received Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council grants to support her work.
