About

Lizzie Hillier Studio produces limited edition screen prints and bold fabric designs. Printed by hand in Sussex, each screen print is a one off. Fabrics are available by the meter, also as cushions and lampshades. Today Lizzie’s prints can be brought online from the artist and directly at print fairs. Lizzie also currently has an exclusive collection of digital prints sold at John Lewis.

Process

Merging Art and Design Lizzie’s work is grounded in process. She plays with form, colour and space, to build compositions. The work reflects the immediate and tangible experience of cutting and arranging paper - screen-printing, looking and then adding the next layer or shape. Lizzie builds a composition piece-by-piece and makes decisions along the way. The interplay of flatness and transparency to create varying depths is integral. Striking a balance between the precise yet improvised. Adjusting and then readjusting until the forms, shapes and colours fit. The aim is to bring disparate ingredients together to create equilibrium. White is central, adding an element of light to the prints. Playing with areas of tension and juxtaposing movement with stillness. The modulation of space is grounded in the methodical printing process. After uncertainty, print forces a commitment, a place to rest.

Background

Lizzie Hillier grew up in Sussex UK, where she continues to work today. She studied BA Textiles at Goldsmiths Collage in London and MA Design at Brighton University. Lizzie went on to run the block print textile company, Woven Oak, where her customers included Liberty London, The Victoria & Albert Museum and Mitsukoshi in Tokyo, Japan. Bauhaus, Abstract Expressionists and Matisse’s cutouts influence her bold abstract style.
