1. Where and how would you display your work in an ideal situation?
My art-meditations are a collaboration with mother earth and human beings. My creations, are not independent of their surroundings, but in fact, a revealing of the interdependence of all life. Therefore, they can be viewed anywhere and anytime.
2. If expository writing is good at elucidating and proving a point and
descriptive geometry gives us the tools by which to map objects in space
in relation to one another, what kind of an apparatus does art afford us?
What does art do best?
Art accomplishes itself when it is shared. The process of sharing is a tap-root to experience to the mysteries of the cycles of life on this blue planet.
3. What can you expect from your audience/fans/viewing public? What would you
like them to know about your work?
I expect nothing. My art is an impermanent offering, an act of rejoicing.
4. Marcel Duchamp said - "Enough with retinal art!" What is your reaction as an artist to this statement?
Duchamp insisted on matter as mediation, which is part of the process of art becoming what it is now - form that melts form - to be here now, experiencing this experience of eternity.
5. Do you think that there is still room for art movements in today's
This pluralistic climate of art is a multi-layered communication from multiple points to other points, like a flowing current, uncontainable.
6. What is one question you wished we had asked you about your art? Please
feel free to answer it.
How is your art universal? It is an environmental awakening.
An artist who practices internationally, Eliza Bishop has two upcoming shows in Berlin - a performance this weekend at a festival called BELOVED and a show at Let It Bleed gallery at the end of September. She also has an upcoming show at the Miami Art Museum.
