Liz Collins works fluidly between art and design, with emphasis and expertise in textile media. Embracing abstraction, optics, and extreme material contrasts, Collins explores the boundaries between painting, fiber arts and installation, intuitively laying bare expressions of energy, emotion, and the viscereality of existence. Collins has had solo exhibitions at the Tang Museum, BGSQD, LMAK and Heller Gallery in New York, AMP in Provincetown, the Knoxville Museum of Art, and Gallery DLUL in Slovenia. Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions internationally, including Spring Break, NADA, Collective, the ICA/Boston, Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, the Museum of FIT, the New Museum, Museum of Arts and Design, MoMA, Sargent’s Daughters, September Gallery, NoLAB Istanbul, and the Drawing Center. Collins’ awards include a USA Fellowship, a MacColl Johnson Fellowship, and residencies at Siena Art Institute, MacDowell, Haystack, Yaddo, and the Museum of Arts and Design.
