Elizabeth Casqueiro explores the changing and ephemeral notion of greatness within society,
and its coexistence with the mundanity of human existence.
Through a process of deconstructing well known messages of greatness, such as past comic books and ads,
and superimposing them with her everyday surroundings, Casqueiro creates abstract matrices
that talk about the disconnect between fiction and reality, the truth behind the mask, the need to believe in a good story,
and the resurfacing of yesterday’s values.
An architect by training, Elizabeth approaches her pieces as individual design projects, taking care to ensure that
line, shape and mark contribute to the overall balance, and that the work comes together
successfully when viewed from any angle.
