Elize Vossgatter works primarily in oil paint. She challenges the conventions of the material with subject-appropriate interjections of glitter, hair, varnish, car oil, babyoil, gold dust, nail varnish or anything else that the paint requires.
Her works are playful and haunting: conical-shaped figures immersed within a fantastical landscape. Isolated, unearthed, self-protective and suspicious, they seek their place within their four-cornered reality. A collection of flawed heroes seeking solace in an artificial reality. She currently works and lives in Cape Town, South Africa.
