Comment
彼女の作品に表出する煌めく水および人体のイメージは、自然と人間との切り離すことのできない関係をあらためて喚起するものである。それは、幼い頃水の中で戯れたような、単純で本質的な物質の驚異である。確実性と不確実性、強靭さと脆弱さ、存続と消滅といった不滅のサイクルへの祝福でもある。

Liz Ingram’s lustrous depictions of water and bodies remind us all of the unbreakable relationship between nature and human beings; it is a marvellous yet essential fact of life that we all tend to forget. Her works are the celebration of the never-ending cycle of certainty and uncertainty, strength and weakness, continuous existence and extinction.
