What Remains: Mixed Media Collages


Liz Gamberg’s work is informed by various influences: her mathematics background, her meditation and yoga practice, what she reads, and patterns and geometry drawn from daily life. 


Artist Statement
As an interdisciplinary artist I continue to discover new mediums for my designs as well as fresh contexts for my evolving images.

Because I’m drawn to designing and building pieces people use in their daily lives, I’ve created hand-built ceramics and collage for decades. Rug design is also an essential aspect of my life as an artist. My rugs are hand-knotted and made of handspun, hand-dyed wool woven in Nepal.

More recently, I’ve begun to work with fabric, needle and thread, and on my sewing machine. I love to combine unexpected patterns and color. The resulting collages are largely created from repurposed fabric and paper I’ve collected over many years: including gift wrap, envelopes, paper napkins, bags, candy wrappers, and yardage from thrift stores.


About the Artist
I am originally from the east coast and have lived in Seattle for decades. I’ve had my hands in art projects my whole life. Most of my working life outside of art has involved teaching mathematics and testing software. These days, I spend most of my time with art. I find that my images travel well across mediums. I’m looking forward to another new venture: co-teaching a writing/collage workshop, “In This Light: Blending Words and Images,” in October.
