Elisabeth Vullings has a background in Interior Architecture which strongly informs her art practice. Her work is driven by the architecture and archaeology of small, obscure and often isolated sites around New Zealand. Once her sites are selected, Elisabeth organises site-visits, documents interactions and structures through drawing and photography; visits local archives, collects site materials and initiates discussion to further understand embedded histories. The art works produced, (mixed media paintings, installation and more recently ceramics), often incorporate recycled buildings materials, providing a framework, scale and patina which is unique to each piece.
