Liz Cooper’s Beauty is the FIrst Test continues its tour... During April it was at R-Space, The Linen Rooms in Northern Ireland. The images show their clever UV fold-out screens! The show then travelled to NCCD in Lincoln (April to June). Their huge gallery space meant new works could be added so Black Eyed Peas, 2524 Minutes joined Beauty is the First Test; it was great to see these two huge related works in the same space.Read More
We had a really busy day of drop-in drawing activities to celebrate my work which is part of the exhibition 'Beauty is the First Test' at the Pump House Gallery in Battersea Park. We explored the magic of the Spirograph and made our own designs into badges to wear. As well as regular sized Spirographs to play with, we also used giant ones (made from bicycle chains and gears) and chalk to make a huge group drawing on the gallery piazza. The chalk and gears were difficult for small hands to control on the uneven floor but we improvised with stencils and before we knew it the drawing was almost 7 meters in diameter!Read More

Beauty and playfulness will be evident in the exhibits to illustrate what delights craftspeople and maths geeks alike.Read More

From thousands of applications I was one of just over a hundred artists selected to compete for a place in the Show Me the Monet Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London. In order to secure a place I had to face the ‘Hanging Committee’ - a panel of judges including Charlotte Mullins, David Lee and Roy Bolton.Read More
