Artist Statement: 

 

The Bottom of the Fountain is Painted Turquoise is the result of an artist residency Milton participated in during the fall of 2019 at Artscape Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Islands. Focused on the carnivalesque nature of Centreville’s manicured gardens and beach-fronts and the crumbling, cosmetic decay of the architecture of leisure, the work collides the concept of an empty pool with the immersive fantasies of colour-field painting, green screen technology, and the illusions of commercial display. Iterated through digital collage, sculpture, video, and installation, The Bottom of the Fountain is Painted Turquoise attempts to wild the manufactured landscape into a site of maximalist play.

 

Biography:

 

Elizabeth Milton is a performance and media artist who lives as an uninvited guest on the unceded territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations in Vancouver, Canada. Her video and photo-based works utilize absurdist character-play and camp materiality to explore identity and affect. Through hyperbolic expressivity, comedic excess, and processes of endurance, Milton examines the performative potential of maximalist femininity, novelty store glamour, and the garish refuse of commercial culture. Her work has been exhibited and performed in Canada, The United States and Europe, most recently at Trinity Square Video (Toronto), VIVO Media Arts Centre (Vancouver), and at Dynasty Handbag’s Weirdo Night (Los Angeles). Milton holds an MFA in Studio Art from the University of British Columbia and is currently a faculty member in the Department of Fine Arts at Langara College in Vancouver, B.C.
