It's My Party By Elizabeth Waggett
It's My Party By Elizabeth Waggett

ÔIt's My PartyÕ is aÊ22k gold hand embellished editionÊby contemporary artist Elizabeth Waggett. Printed onto Cotton Paper, and finished with hand-applied 22K Rose gold, 22K Champagne Gold, and archival pigment ink. The piece is from a Unique Hand-Embellished Edition of 25 and is signed and numbered by the artist.

'It's My Party' depicts a flashy gold party hat sitting atop the head of a monochrome skull. The juxtaposition of the hat and skull gives this piece a humorous yet unsettling aura as the hollow eyes of the skull "look" straight through the viewer.

About The Artist - Elizabeth Waggett

Eminently modern and free spirited Elizabeth's artwork focuses on the confusion of today's modern society. She challenges the viewer to confront the relationship between humanity’s preconceived notions of value and worth, in our consumable world. The Gold Standard, which has been used for centuries, is a perfect representation of humanity’s obsession with vain and valueless beauty.



Using time honoured skills in a contemporary way, Elizabeth brings a modern twist to traditional forms through her work. Her social commentary, seeks to illuminate the arbitrary value we place on useless and culturally devoid items, while simultaneously devaluing those things with innate value. She pokes fun at man's obsessive quest to obtain more and more while we are living, ignoring the purpose of our lives. From this Elizabeth questions the arbitrary prioritisation of Earth’s most precious assets, questioning the relationships, behaviours and patterns of humanity. Many of us remain divorced from direct responsibility for the destruction of our planet’s invaluable resources, often taking the word of the media, politicians, religious leaders and CEOs at face value.

Using the subject of animal, human skulls and personal artefacts, Elizabeth exposes the responsibility of the individual in owning the effects of their decisions. Adorning each piece with gold leaf and precious metal, the dichotomy of the monochromatic pallet against the gold is a visual representation of the struggle of the inner self to balance greed and purpose.

She draws inspiration from her international background with her work being dominated by the discordant relationship between true value and worth. Having lived all over the world in some of the most diverse and contrasting cities, she is fascinated by the stark comparison of perceived success, and draws on this international experience to narrate her work.

The monochromatic pallet simplifies the form allowing a deeper exploration of the subject matter. This causes the viewer to focus first on a photographic representation, before a closer inspection reveals the true technique. This fine art technique takes hours of intense concentration before a final gilding of 24 karat gold leaf is applied. True to this fine art tradition, she only uses the highest quality materials, responsibly sourced, such as certified Saunders Waterford archival cotton paper and ethically sourced 24 karat gold.

The works of British artist Elizabeth Waggett are highly sought after and have been exhibited at solo shows in NYC, L.A, Abu Dhabi and Manchester. Waggett has exhibited her drawings, and editions, around the world. She has presented her work in art fairs in Basel, Miami, New York, London, Hong Kong, Zurich, Brussels, Houston, and Paris. Waggett has also been commissioned by HRH The Prince of Wales in collaboration with The Prince's Trust, 50th anniversary. Waggett has worked with luxury brands as such as Saks, Soho House and SLS Hotels and has been featured in campaigns alongside Fendi and Valentino. She holds an honours degree in Fashion and a postgraduate in Design from the University of Manchester. Elizabeth is currently residing and maintaining full time studio practice in New York City.
