Elizabeth Balcomb - View Artist Biography Here

 

Elizabeth Balcomb’s work is a re-interpretation of classical sculpture.  She focuses on the feminine, using the language of the Renaissance to explore and expose aspects of human nature.  Balcomb’s narrative threads ways of dying and being reborn, with matters of identity and personal value.

The narcissistic stare of Pieta exposes the dual nature of the human condition – the video camera a necessity, strapped on with a ribbon that reminds one of the Jewish phylacteries, suggesting some kind of bondage to deep need.
