About

LIZZIE CARR-5

Primarily an oil painter, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting Major/2015) from the Alberta College of Art and Design, my paintings are often investigations into personal history, with social and political factors at the forefront of the imagery.  The majority of my work revolves around the influences and effects of mass media and communication on the everyday middle class within contemporary western culture. Most recently, the oil paintings I create focus on body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), a mental illness revolving around body image issues that results in depression and social phobia, and the ages in which these insecurities and ideas are developing.

Award winning and internationally exhibited in such places as Amsterdam, Paris, Copenhagen and Brooklyn, my work has also been exhibited across Canada. My paintings have been published in several art magazines and books (see CV for more details).

Originally from Essex, England, I moved to Canada in 2002, and currently live in Calgary, Canada.
