Elizabeth Hefty-Khoury (Spain)
Elizabeth Hefty-Khoury is a London born writer and artist, and co-owner of Bloom Gallery in Valencia, Spain. Her work is a symbolic interpretation of the body. Issues such as grief, mental illness, violence, and inequality inform her use of the corporeal as a representation of the emotional being. As well as an MFA in Painting, Elizabeth holds a MA in Celtic Studies, and her interest in comparative mythology forms an important part of her research methodology. She believes that a painting holds multiple narratives, interpretable through different viewpoints and experience. Her figures are deliberately fragmented and abstracted, faceless and often with gender ambiguous.
