Elizabeth Briel

Sketching a mural late at night, Beijing (2015)

Elizabeth Briel left the US in 2003 to explore the Asia-Pacific, hasn’t returned yet, and is in the early stages of immigrating to Hong Kong (year one of seven for Permanent Residency). Previous homes have included Australia, Cambodia, Thailand, Italy, France, Mainland China, and Korea.

She is currently artist-in-residence for an educational foundation in Hong Kong. At the heart of her artwork are experiments with multiple layers of meaning in the interactions between material culture, text, language, and cultural collisions.
