Amy Elizabeth’s approach to her practice is interdisciplinary and diverse. She questions and critiques pre-existing social and moral norms present in the Western world, playfully distorting belief systems to reveal a sense of irony and dissidence.
Amy graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts majoring in Fine Arts with Honors First Class from Sydney University’s Sydney College of the Arts. Her preceding body of work consisted of a collection of screen prints, an exploration and transgression of culturally imposed binary systems through the analysis and appropriation of the Old School tattoo and pin up aesthetic.
A central aspect of her work is its erotic nature and the depiction of feminine women unabashedly displaying body language exuding power and confidence and utilising their own Gaze, contrasting with traditional pin up girls. Amy Elizabeth’s work depicts female sexuality and strength behind the hyper-femme gender performance. She brings this spirit to her work included in the XXX ABCs.
Live Drawing Artist
LHD Art is a self taught artist. She is passionate about depicting people feeling safe to be their authentic self. This is reflected in the work she exhibits. LHD has worked on a variety of creative projects, showcasing the beauty of regular people using their bodies naturally - the way they were designed to be used.
Her works from self-directed projects such as Brusqueness, Femme Domme and Athletes have been showcased around the world. Her solo exhibitions have toured Sydney, Armidale, Korea, New Orleans, Los Angeles and Florida.
Her works are not merely life drawing. but often capture live movement, from planned professional performances to spontaneous moments of intimacy. The circumstances LHD chooses to draw from are not only challenging artistically, but also emotionally. Her greatest challenge, however, is capturing the intention of her models in the moment through their posture and expression - the most difficult question raised by LHD's work is why people do what they do?
This project will challenge her to step out of her normal artistic process and adapt to the changing times of isolation.
