Liz Aggiss is an un-disciplined artist with an un-disciplined body of work. This does not mean she is undisciplined. Au contraire. She is exceptionally disciplined. Dodging categorization and being classified as unclassifiable, has been a full time job.
Born on Nanny Goats Common, Dagenham, Essex, a post war baby, into a repressive era in the suburbs, where parents were truly in charge and children were seen and not heard, Liz Aggiss never had a clue who she was or what she wanted to do, she just knew she would like to be seen and heard. After cantering into the sunset, as soon as was decently possible, she accidentally stumbled into the arts and started moving in a mysterious manner and shouting………rather a lot.
Liz Aggiss has been described as: maverick, challenging, anarchic, indomitable, dangerous, uncompromising, subversive, fearless, funny, powerfully disturbing yet vulnerable.
Liz Aggiss simply says…..I am lizaggiss.
