Elizabeth Merei





Elizabeth Merei, a Hungarian born artist came to Toronto in 1972 where she currently lives and works. Growing up in Szombathely, Hungary a city with a 2,000 year old history, made a lifelong impression on her. In 1979, she carved her first sculpture in stone, which became her ultimate form of expression. Carving directly into the stone without models or maquettes, using the natural stone with its imperfections and sudden temper became an ongoing challenge. Elizabeth has a keen interest in the beauty, spirit and harmony of the human form. Whether abstract or classical, her work exudes sensuality and tension between smooth and rough surfaces. She has exhibited widely, with shows in Canada, the United States and abroad. She has also served on the executive of the Sculptors Society of Canada since 1985.
