Artist Statement:
Described by New York Times critic Ken Johnson as a combination of “painterly verve and hellish beauty," my work is concerned with examining and amplifying the intrinsic abstract beauty of deteriorating or overlooked corners of the city's architecture, waterways and infrastructure. My paintings are about the intense energy and mystery inherent in scrap yards and deteriorating buildings marked by human use and abandonment. I seek out an emotional engagement with these places.

The work of Lizbeth Mitty is represented in many private, corporate, international and museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Zimmerli Archive, the US Department of State and Fidelity Financial.

She began exhibiting in New York in 1980 at the Rosa Esman Gallery and has shown widely in the U.S. And abroad. Lizbeth is the recipient of an Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation grant. Reviews of her work have appeared in the New York Times, New York Magazine, San Fransisco Chronicle, etc.

Lizbeth was born in New York City and resides in Brooklyn.
