Art by Liz Manicatide:
These works are characterized by a wealth of saturated color,
whimsical characters and fantastic, dreamlike imagery informed by
iconic elements from our collective visual culture.
Like dreams, these scenes give us permission to escape the routine of daily life and indulge in flights of fancy to delightful, weird and fun places -- where forces of the unconscious and whimsical impulses become embodied and we have a chance to play in fantastical landscapes with odd and humorous creatures.
