About

These drawings were made on index-card dividers from a box of recipes begun in 1984 and occasionally added to over many years. The collecting, constructing, organizing, labeling, keeping, deconstructing, extending, and connecting give these drawings their history, precarious stability, and essence. Each drawing is on a 4 x 6 inch divider (with the tab Exacto-ed off). The collaged marks are cut-up used file folders with. The color is Prismacolor pencils or Flashe paint. The marks colored in pencil were leftover from earlier work, while the painted marks were new. The other type of mark came from peeling off the top layer of the divider paper. In each drawing, every decision is a reaction to the previous one. There is no advance plan or vision. Liz Sweibel primarily makes sculpture, installations, and drawings. She uses a spare, personal language of abstraction to explore liminal spaces and unseen forces: wind, history, values, math, gravity, protein, memory. Sweibel’s process is low-tech and improvisational, and relies on particular yet ordinary materials, remnants, and gestures. Since 1998, Sweibel has participated in solo, two-person, and group exhibits in New York, New England, Michigan, and Tennessee. Recent exhibits include Precarious Constructs at Venus Knitting Space in Brooklyn and Lightly Structured at Sculpture Space NYC in Long Island City. Also in 2016 was the group show Appropriation and Such at 337 Project Space in Grand Rapids. Sweibel’s drawings were featured in the flat files during KIOSK, a 2015 exhibit. Liz Sweibel received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and her MFA from Maine College of Art. She also holds a BA in English and an MA in Counseling. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
