About the artist
Sydney-based artist Elizabeth Pulie studied painting at Sydney College of the Arts and has exhibited in both Australia and internationally. Her practice extends her ongoing philosophical project concerning the end of art. Utilising a variety of formats and materials, from political banners, macramé, embroidery and beading, Pulie creates an aesthetic frisson in the as-yet unfinished debates around art’s possible future.
