Elizabeth Briel was born in California. She received a BFA in Painting from the University of Minnesota, and has lived and worked over a decade in Greater China. Her prints, paintings, and installations deal with the sensation of belonging nowhere yet being equally (un)comfortable anywhere. They begin with materials imbued with meaning—papers devastated by a typhoon or made of military uniforms, paints of bone and lead—and frequently incorporate architectural elements. She has exhibited in four continents, and works as artist-in-residence with the Yew Chung Education Foundation in Hong Kong. Her public studio is located in Hong Kong’s Creative Arts Centre, #6-15.
