Caviar20 has long admired Lizz Aston's evolving career and body of work.

We are pleased to be offering her incredible creations. 

Aston's practice is inspired by the history and production of textiles and decorative arts. In recent years she has become captivated by semi-precious stones or rocks with dynamic color characteristics...leading to work that contrasts a stone's permanence with the delicate nature of paper or fabric. 

"Blue Apatite" is one of the most powerful and revered minerals. For believers in the healing power of crystals it has been heralded for its alleged capacity to improve psychic powers when held. 

In this hypnotic work, Lizz Aston creates a piece that shares its energy with the famed crystal. The source pattern is an anonymous textile, digitally manipulated by the artist. This new transformed and augmented pattern is then hand-cut on fine Japanese Kozo paper (aka mulberry paper) then painted, stained and dyed.

In this work Aston masterfully creates a color scale of blues that begin with a denim-hued edge gradually arriving in a soothing sapphire blue core.  

To heighten the form's impact Aston elevates the cut-out with a structure of pins creating dramatic shadows.
