Liz Chapman (b. 1984, UK) is a mixed media artist who manipulates materials to play out the role of scientist, conduit of nature and creator. Chapman’s work focuses on biology and the natural sciences, in a drive to understand the weave and weft of the world around us; it highlights the essence of the artist’s physical relationship with the world. Recreating, mimicking and dissecting the substance of scientific phenomena, she expresses the multiple relationships the artist has with matter, and her physical creations are a corporal exploration of the natural world.
Chapman has recently completed coordinating the D:Circus Digital Art Project; a two-year programme funded by Arts Council England and Wigan Council, working with Wigan Libraries and Museums to deliver high quality digital art. The project covered different aspects of digital art, to give people in Wigan borough and beyond the opportunity to grow and enhance their potential for digital expression and arts engagement.
Chapman also facilitates ‘Artist Discussion’, a peer support group for artists of all disciplines on a voluntary basis across Wigan Borough. She has extensive experience of delivering and planning workshops, interactive creative projects, story and making sessions with people of all ages. Chapman is also a qualified Arts Award Discover & Explore Advisor with an NVQ Level 3 in Education and Training.
