SURIANI ARTISTRY

Elizabeth Suriani is a Studio Artist and Gallery Assistant at Artworks Center for Contemporary Artand has been a part of the community since 2020. She graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a minor in Art History in 2016. While at the University of Wyoming she primarily studied 2D art style, including oil painting and printmaking. Elizabeth has also studied in Florence, Italy where she studied fresco restoration. 

 

Before the pandemic, Elizabeth created and curated her first solo exhibition while living and teaching in Bangkok, Thailand, titled, Complacent. This installation was centered around the over-production and use of plastic waste and the way it is affecting our planet. In the end she totaled over 1,000 plastic bags and waste for the knitted “blanket” that she created as the centerpiece. 

 

Since mid 2020, Elizabeth has been working on a series called Say My Name, and is looking forward to finishing it by the end of 2022.  Say My Name  is a series based on marginalized groups and traumas they have experienced and wish to share. 

 

Elizabeth has shown locally and internationally, and is excited about  the opportunities that Artworks will bring for her future.
