“In Seen and Unseen, Gates reimagines traditional symbols of home as she collaborates with her children, Sparrow and Ty, to discuss the particular flavor of American nomadism that has been passed down from their foremothers. The resulting work is a love letter to the unseen parts of a family and the unspoken ways folklore influences a unique and isolated heritage.
Liz Gates is a multi-media artist and printmaker who’s work centers around questions of gendered labor, feminist mother identity, and self-manifestation. Her work has been exhibited at venues including The Museum of Southeast Texas, Beaumont; The Blaffer Art Museum, Houston; The Printing Museum, Houston; Foltz Fine Art, Houston; Lawndale Center for the Arts, Houston; Monterroso Gallery, Houston; The Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts, Lubbock; The Mary Matteson Parrish Art Gallery, the Woodlands; Hardy and Nance Studios, Houston; Splendora Gardens, Splendora; and Elgin Street Studios, Houston.
