About

Born in Queens, NY to a family of artists, inventors and actors, Lizbeth Mitty grew up painting and writing. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in both the United States and abroad and is held in public and private collections including the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The New York State Museum, The Orlando Museum of Art, The Zimmerli Archive, The U.S. State Department, and Trierenberg Holding AG (Austria). My studio is located in Brooklyn, NY. Described by New York Times critic Ken Johnson as a combination of “painterly verve and hellish beauty” — Mitty's work has long been concerned with examining and amplifying the intrinsic abstract beauty of deteriorating or overlooked corners of urban architecture and interiors. In 2015, one object, the chandelier, rose up from detritus to dominate her body of work. Spectacular, illuminated and intricate, the chandelier is evocative of grandeur. In contrast, for much of Mitty's career, scrap yards and other sites of urban devastation, locations of organized chaos, formally beautiful, yet apocalyptic and terrifying. Similarly, the chandeliers speak of decadence, sadness, elegance, death and hope. By 2017, the chandeliers began to open and morph into architecture in the round. Gazebos and scrap dominate a verdant post-apocalyptic landscape that the viewer may enter. The juxtapositions of conflicting images, such as man-made detritus and lush English gardens, serve as commentary on a post-9/11 sense of impermanence and the imperative to consider the finite nature of the earth's resources. The cyclical nature and mutability of things in times of excess are the subliminal driving forces in these works. “Acutely observed, remembered and then re-imagined, these futuristic scenes are not so much renditions of a specific location as they are dizzying translations in paint of Mitty's wonderment at the endless variety of visual information offered up by her subjects.” — Art in America, January 2006
