Elizabeth Archer

As Elizabeth Archer’s work has evolved, its central concern with the movement of the human figure has strengthened. Movement or gesture can reveal an inner state, attitude, or character; or it can be expressive of the beauty and essential rhythmic nature of motion. Sensing it is a way of identifying with the figure.

The line of the gesture is its core. It leads the artist into a study
of the weights, tensions and balances of a pose and then to a
deliberate construction of the planes of the movement.

Ms. Archer’s interest remains the communicative power of the
human form.
