Liesl Pfetffer is an artist primarily working with photo-media, collage, drawing, fibre art and site specific installation. Her art practice is process driven, playful and experimental. Elements of chance and handmade construction are important to her creative approach.
When developing a body of work, she considers how the viewer will experience the physical context. "I want the viewer to feel immersed in a synthetic world of shapes, color, prisms and textures." She typically creates site specific wall paintings, woven textiles or sculptures to complement her two-dimensional collages.
Common themes in her work include the photograph as representation of the real, the original vs the reproducible object, and the value of the material object. Her work often questions our perceptions of value by transforming banal elements into visually seductive landscapes or objects.
