Liz Sweibel’s work is an exploration of liminal spaces, points of contact, and unseen forces: wind, history, values, math, gravity, emotion, memory. Her drawings, sculpture, and installations are spare and abstract, using specific yet ordinary materials and gestures. She often salvages materials, sources, and forms from her older work and uses them to make sense and establish identity in the present. Her studio process is low-tech, immediate, and improvisational.
Sweibel holds a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and an MFA from Maine College of Art. She also holds a BA in English and an MA in Counseling. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
