London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 11, 2009 -- In this joint exhibition at The Colomb Art Gallery, London, Susan Thomson and Liz Watts have combined their specialised mediums to create an exhibition with an encompassing scope of works. Both artists exhibit regularly throughout the UK and frequently exhibit together. This is their first joint exhibition in London.
THE ARTISTS Lizâs roots in veterinary medicine give an interesting anatomical edge to her interpretation of âthe nature of the beastâ.
Her chosen range of media allows Liz a fulfilling freedom in the interpretation of the image. She exhibits pieces in clay, porcelain, bronze and papier-mÃ¢chÃ©, using acrylic, stain, glazes, oil paint and glass in the finishes. Liz often incorporates the written or spoken word into a piece. The work she creates this way is original, unusual and intriguing. Her work can be found in private and business collections. http://www.lizwatts.co.uk
