Angela Lizon

Vivienne Baker, Horseman. 20 x 15 cm. Oil on canvas 2023. Selected for John Moores Painting Prize, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool 2023

Studio 104

Angela Lizon stages narratives using digital collage, photographs, oversized flowers, kitsch objects, fairies and animated vegetables. Mostly growing the flowers she paints, Lizon uses the bouquet as a stage or garden for allegorical narratives to tell a story and hopefully capture something of the enchantment in the undergrowth.

“Horseman” is a response to the famous photo of Putin riding topless on a horse and the idea of toxic masculinity that it embodies. The image forms a part of a large still-life referencing the Apocalypse, a cross between 17th century Dutch floral art, Bosch and Disney.
