Lizi Sánchez's (b. 1975, Lima, Peru) works reflect on the emergence of Latin American abstraction in the 1950s and combine it with references to confectionary brands, party paper chains, and articles of mass consumption. Her work deliberately uses common materials like packaging or building items, looking 'at making and production in a market–driven world where surface, style and presentation seem to be the ultimate end'. The artist re–purposes these materials in the context of visual art, employing labour–intensive hand–made processes that 'imitate, but essentially contrast with those of the mass market and the glossy high–end manufacturing of art production.
