Liza Lou

Liza Lou

Liza Lou was born in New York City in 1969 and she now lives and works in Los Angeles and KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Lou’s work has captivated audiences since her first major sculpture, Kitchen—a life-size room covered entirely with glass beads was exhibited at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York in 1996. Over the past twenty years, Lou has explored themes of American popular culture in room-size sculptures and environments such as Kitchen (1991-1996), American Presidents (1995-2000), Back Yard (1996-1999), Trailer (1998-2000), Security Fence (2005), Cell (2004-06) and Maximum Security (2007-08). The tension created between seductive surfaces, often challenging subject matter and the artist’s labor-intensive processes invites viewers to experience the work at both the level of visual wonder and critical analysis. Recent work includes abstract meditations on process and form in works such as Gather (one million) 2008-10, a shimmering harvest of gold, and wall mounted sculptures that explore the canvas as object, and the beauty of imperfection.
