This event has ended.

Heller Gallery in association with the American Design Club presents Having It All, an exhibition of works by American artist and designer Liz Collins. A curated selection of original pieces as well as limited edition items from her Optic Home Collection, will be on display, arriving just in time for the holidays. The exhibition will also feature pieces made in collaboration with designer Harry Allen.

In both her artworks and her home textiles Collins uses the universal language of bold lines, repeated stripes and jagged lighting bolts in vivid colors. The hard-edged shapes act like the caution chevrons and zig zags on trucks or traffic signage that warn you to watch out. Layers of pattern assert themselves with explosive energy and create a deep clash of alluring sensuality. Everything is covered with pattern and the space is made to glow.

Recognized internationally for her use of machine knitting to create groundbreaking clothing, textiles, and installation, Collins has elevated the relevance of yarn and extended the use of textiles beyond the body and moved them into space and architecture. In her work art and applied design coexist: a painting is a rug is a blanket is a dress is wallpaper.
