New York based British artist Elizabeth Waggett strives to highlight the symmetry & beauty in the natural world and how man can destroy this.
The artist uses evocative imagery to represent the things we should be valuing, in particular the environment and our place in it. Depicting animal, human skulls and personal artefacts, Waggett exposes the responsibility of the individual in owning the effects of their decisions. Her imagery highlights the emphasis we place on material wealth, mass consumerism and the negative effect this has on the Earth’s invaluable natural resources.
Using time honoured skills in a contemporary way Waggett brings a modern twist to traditional forms through her work. The artist adorns each work of art with gold leaf and precious metal contrasting with monochrome palette, as a visual representation of the struggle of the inner self to balance greed and purpose.
Elizabeth Waggett’s highly sought-after work is exhibited globally. She has been commissioned by HRH The Prince of Wales, in collaboration with the Prince's Trust 50th anniversary and has been featured in campaigns alongside Fendi and Valentino.
