Artist RegionOntario
Lizz Aston is a textile artist and designer based in Toronto. Interested in bridging gaps between traditional textile practice and contemporary art and design. Her work encompasses both sculpture and installation, including interactive and site-specific projects. Inspired by the rich histories of textile production, lace-making and the decorative arts, the artist draws from these themes, to navigate the connections we feel to domestic textile practices such as knitting or crochet and their resulting objects. Aston holds an Advanced Diploma in Crafts & Design from Sheridan (2009) and has exhibited across Canada and the United States, as well as in Australia and South Korea.
