When you look at the paintings of Liz Knox the first thing you notice are the colours, there are plenty in evidence, the interesting part is how she uses them. Fiery orange off-set against deep ultra-marine blue and steely grey, the contrast increasing the drama of each.
But then colour was always a feature in Liz’s career, one of her early jobs was as a lab technician working with industrial paints and pigments, later she moved into colour physics and spectrophotometry for dyeing and textiles. Liz then took her scientific knowledge of colour down a more creative path studying Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art under Sir Robin Philipson and David Michie, graduating in 1971.
Liz Knox been the deserving recipient of numerous awards and her work is sought after by both private and corporate collectors.
