About the Artist

Elize de Beer is a South African artist based in Cork Ireland working form her studio at Sample Studios. She graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Arts at the University of Cape Town, South Africa with a BAFA. The following year she gain her honours in Curatorial Studies. As printmaking and bookarts are her main mediums, she belongs to the printmaking collective “The Printing Girls” and is a full member of Cork Printmakers. de Beer’s visual language plays with text, textures and visual explores the physicality of books; all influenced by her personal dyslexic experiences. In her current body of work de Beer is looking at creating artworks that attempt bridge the gap between visual art and the craft of bookbinding. One method is using bookbinding waste material in the art making process, such as old broken book covers and marbled pages. She had been part of numerous exhibitions and has artworks in both private and institutional collections. Alongside her artistic practice she has worked with in various creative industries which includes currently owning her bindery, Bookward Bound Bindery, a collaborative bindery which creates limited edition publications and artist books.
