Elizabeth Orcutt (b. 1963, UK) is an artist working with photography, currently making self-portraits as part of a PhD by practice with an expected completion early 2018. Working through a series of visual essays (attempts or try-outs), Lizzy is interested in how image mediates the experience of self. The earliest research series of ‘Madonna and Child’ images indicated the self sited within the look, neither subject nor object but intersubjective and experiential. The Blog section of this site is part of the methodology for her art research and is private for academic and ethical reasons. Feel free to request to view, link to contact here.
Elizabeth also works as a lecturer in the Fashion & Textiles Institute at Falmouth University and has had an earlier career as a picture editor most recently at The Times and a discrete project for Reuters.
