Liz Roetzel describes herself as a conceptual artist with a decorative sensibility. She creates abstract art about subjects that are meaningful to her while incorporating her love for strong color, well-defined edges, and interesting composition. She admits with humor that she pays almost obsessive attention to detail and that she strives continually to strike a balance between surrender and control while creating her art. Her work has been described as elegant, boldly feminine, thought provoking, and oftentimes playful.
Since earning her BFA at Memphis College of Art in 2007, Roetzel’s work has been juried into numerous solo and group shows at various venues including the Hickory Museum of Art (Hickory, NC), Visual Art Exchange (Raleigh), Carrboro Century Center (Carrboro, NC), Durham Art Guild (Durham, NC), Chapel Hill Town Hall, and the Works of Heart Live Auction at the Progress Energy Center (Raleigh).
