Liz Ndoye is an artist inspired by many things. She draws upon her experience of seeing and collecting art and fabric from cultures that she has visited all over the world. American artists like the great Hawkins Bolden and Thorton Dial have influenced her work. Finally her own childhood dolls and toys have been her muses in her creative process for many years.
The combination of these inspirations have given her a passion for creating a “society” of dolls or creatures. These creatures have their own cultural universals — language, religion, tools and technology, family structure, politics and government, etc. Ndoye is a mixed media/fabric artist who enjoys using found and recycled materials to create cross-cultural artifacts like her dolls.
The pieces on display during her solo show at Ceres Gallery will cover the aesthetic values of the Doll Culture. Ms. Ndoye will show mixed media works including reverse glass painting and works on paper and fabric. Through her paintings and sculpture she will show this complex and inviting civilization’s more creative side.
