My name is Liz Feeley and I will be graduating this spring from the BFA program with a double concentration in Ceramics and Graphic Design as well as a complement in Printmaking, — that’s a lot! My work has shifted from project to project either on social interactions or imagined worlds based on what I see around me.
My passion for gaming has influenced not only my work but process, researching regions, folklore, people, flora and fauna alike, history, mythology, and really any scrap of information I can gather to help create a setting or story where my pieces exist. For me whether creating or viewing a piece, it is about more than escapism or storytelling but connection.
A connection to history all over our world, other cultures and species I’ve never heard of prior. Most of all a connection that I’ve seen form between people who view my work and
converse together or with me about a finished or in progress piece.
Listening to how others build their own world where my works thrive, opening their minds
to possibilities and imagination that so many have closed themselves off to.
A smile, a laugh, a conversation and a connection. To me, these are the most precious parts of my work and what I hope to achieve.
