Elizabeth Bisbing-Statement

( bio/ statement / work )

“Everything begins with drawing. I spend a lot of time out drawing in botanical gardens and museums. I love doing this. From there, these drawings are used in combination to create new drawings/collages in sketchbooks or these sketches could become a part of a series of collages, such as the Calamity series. In this series two little girls are on the verge of various perils but they seem totally unaware of what is coming their way. From there, these collages and ideas are developed into the stop motion animations. For all the animations, Little Betty Jane – the paper doll ‘star’ always suffers in the end. In many ways my own alter ego, I just keep killing her over and over again. Just as Little Betty Jane is unaware of what perils lie around the corner – so are we all.”
