Brooklyn-based artist Liz Lomax does not take the easy road.
Drawing comes easily to her, but she prefers more of a 3-D punch.
That means pulling a lot of all-nighters to create obsessively detailed, miniature scenes that feature whimsical characters, often based on real people. She photographs the scenes for ads, magazines, newspapers, books, album covers — and fine art.
Her work is on the cover of Al Gore’s new book, “Our Choice.” She also has several works of art in “Lines of Attack: Conflicts in Caricature,” on view through May 16, 2010, at the Nasher Museum. Watch a short video of the artist in her studio here.
