Los Angeles-based artist, Lizzy Waronker, specializes in assemblage, exploring mythologies – often in miniature - and postmodern reclaiming. Drawing on childhood explorations in her family's labyrinthine New England home, she injects a surprising amount of detail into her three-dimensional worlds and cross sections.
Waronker has confronted scales large and small in her exhibitions, often placing Lilliputian sculptures in over-sized environment installations. She summons personal, as well as cultural, experience to conjure Gothic American tapestries of chaotic yet cohesive folklore. She is self-taught, finding inspiration in nature, the detritus of others, and decomposition caused by neglect and time.
