The team at Mitchell Studios is delighted to welcome back Khandallah artist Lizzie Pannell for her much-anticipated second solo show.

EMERGENCE is an amorphous idea. It is a variety of notions: rising up, coming into being, iterating, quietly evolving.

Through an artistic lens, Lizzie reflects upon the concept of separate elements coming together to become something new. For example, a seed alone will amount to little, but united with water and soil something wholly unique emerges into the light. Likewise, an artist’s tools in isolation are nothing more than singular objects, but when combined at the hands of the artist, a natural and organic creation occurs. Just as nature is an assembler, creator, and transformer, so is the artist.

EMERGENCE celebrates the coming together of precise elements at a precise time to form something perfectly unique. Petal by petal.

The style of these pieces fuse still life study and abstract elegance. Just as every flower is unique, so are these works.

Her recent ‘dripping’ style conjures secondary emotion and sentiment ‘below the bouquet’. Flowers are given and shared as celebration, commemoration, and expression of love. And often that something deeper lies beneath. Lizzie names the works ambiguously to allow the owner and viewer to interpret the pieces in a way that speaks to them.
