Liz Blum is a visual artist whose image base is reality at large, its past/present and future conditions.  Her interest lies in the deconstruction and manipulation of the image in photographic form or in video making visible the unseen, or unknown, reinventing meaning and content. This can be as fact or the selective transforming of reality, the twisting of it to bring out its essence, fiction.

Recent exhibitions include: Wall St. to Main St. Occupy Art, Greene County for the Arts, Catskill, NY (2012) LOVE/HATE, Lana Santorelli, Hoboken, NJ (2012) INCIDENT REPORT, Hudson, NY (2011), finalist in Bring to Light: Nuit Blanche NYC (2011), and Paramour at Amrose+ Sable, NY (2009). Book illustrations published for Stanford University Press textbook Microeconomics Theory Old and New (2010). Grants and fellowships include Information Literacy Faculty Development Grant (2010) and New York Foundation for the Arts (2008).

Liz Blum teaches Digital Photography, New Art Forms and Basic Design.
