Immortalized in Marble explores the continuous adaptation of the human form; from flesh to sculpture to painting. In each rendering, the body alters, changes into something other than it was before. It takes a photograph of a sculpture (again another point in the process of adaption) as its subject. The painting was an experiment for a larger body of work, where human form was completely dissolved into abstraction, and serves as a stepping point on a journey of artistic and creative evolution.

1972 London, United Kingdom

Elizabeth Hefty-Khoury is a London born writer and artist, and co-owner of Bloom Gallery in Valencia, Spain. Her work is a symbolic interpretation of the body. Issues such as grief, mental illness, violence, and inequality inform her use of the corporeal as a representation of the emotional being. As well as an MFA in Painting, Elizabeth holds a MA in Celtic Studies, and her interest in comparative mythology forms an important part of her research methodology. She believes that a painting holds multiple narratives, interpretable through different viewpoints and experience. Her figures are deliberately fragmented and abstracted, faceless and often with gender ambiguous.
