Liza Corbett's work contemplates The Summer-Land, the spirit world that lays unseen alongside our own. Liza creates visual narratives populated with otherworldly women and animals, under heavy suns low in hazy, wan skies. Her subject matter is tinged with the menace of pre-modern life and suffused with an air of melancholy. Influenced by nineteenth-century spiritualism, by Dark Romanticism, by myths, fables and old tales, Liza aims to create images that, like tarot or other methods of divination, suggest a strange and unknowable significance underlying our worldly existence.
