Sick 'em Up
Sick 'em Up
I often find myself wondering if we are alone in the universe. Space is the next frontier. My hope is that we learn from the mistakes of our past and venture out with open hearts and curious minds. When we leave earth what will we bring with us and what will we leave behind? Through painting these feminist futurescapes I explore the vastness of the universe and wonder what our neighbors on other worlds will think of us. Drips, splatters and rich texture in my art are created with layers of acrylic pen, latex and spray paint. With confident, free gestural strokes I build layers of texture. By using a palette of gentle pastels, I bring an updated feel to a subject often seen through a masculine lens.

One of a Kind Painting on Canvas by Artist Liz Haywood
About The Artist:
Vibrant colors permeate the art of Charlotte native Liz Haywood. Liz graduated from Appalachian State University and then attended the Portfolio Center in Atlanta. She completed her studies winning several student awards. Liz was attracted to the professional challenge of working in New York. She worked primarily as a graphic artist in Manhattan for seven years. After attaining the position as head of graphic design for the popular shoe brand, Dolce Vita, she focused on establishing herself as an independent artist. Returning to the south, she developed a steady demand for her art through social media and local showings. In Atlanta, she painted several murals in public spaces to voice her social concerns. After relocating to Charlotte, Liz created a body of work for festivals and arts shows, including Bethesda Art Row and The Festival in The Park. She was awarded an Honorable Mention by SouthEnd Arts and the Brooklyn Collective in 2021. That year Liz was also accepted into a mural residency program by Brand the Moth, where she completed her capstone mural at Lenny Boy Brewing Company. Liz’s work is now being displayed nationwide after being juried into the ArtPop class of 2022.
