Elizabeth McGrath

Elizabeth McGrath is a Los Angeles based artist who makes some really whacked out (but amazing) sculptures. Her work kind of reminds me of something Mark Ryden might sculpt, items of bright colors, a bit whimsy, but still dark and slightly morbid. My favorite of her pieces are the deer heads, which have elaborate sails intertwined between their horns. I can’t imagine how long it would take to complete pieces like these but I’m sure these weren’t easy to create. Sadly, she just finished up a show here in Los Angeles, I would have loved to see these in person.
