About The Artist
Liz Jaff explores the structural attributes and aesthetic qualities intrinsic to paper that she hand-cuts and folds into highly formal compositions in both objects and large-scale installations that reflect her personal impression of space and memory. Through abstraction and repetition of architectural and natural forms, she makes environments and objects that convey the specific feeling and character of a place or event from her everyday life. The ephemeral, transitory nature of paper gives Jaff the perfect medium to characterize the fleeting feelings of her memory of time and space. The events of her everyday life take Jaff from home to work to studio, etc and always complete a circle by returning home. Circles serve as an interesting metaphor for memory and are a recurring motif in her work. Circles also allow her a formal tool to investigate the change of light and dark as two-dimensions are turned into three.
