Elizabeth Hohimer is an artist from Texas, born behind the Pine Curtain and raised in the Hill Country. She currently resides in the far West Texas town of Marfa.
She received her BFA in Textiles from the California College of the Arts, with an emphasis in weaving.
Hohimer’s site-specific, land-based practice revolves around an immersive study of atmosphere, color, and the deep layers of desert space. Her current work serves as artifacts from time spent connecting to the desert landscape. All materials embody a moment in a landscape that has passed.
The suspended passage of time that takes place where the horizon line is visible seeps into this work through a lingering atmospheric notion of nostalgia from the materials' origins.
The consistency of freedom and solitude have been mapped with colors whose energy corresponds to the spaces both in land and in the mind where they were first collected.
