Elizabeth Day is a visual artist and arts facilitator whose career spans more than 30 years. She maintains a studio practice in Sydney, NSW, and Bruny Island, Tasmania.

“Creatively, Day’s work has been at the forefront of developments in feminist art practice, as it has engaged with issues of transportation, colonisation, migration, exile, and adaptation through practices of creating networks and histories: tracing traumas and sketching survivals […]

“Day’s work cultivates an alternative ecology founded on the ethics of care and generosity, an ethics that aspires to honour the equivalence of all things, and through that non-hierarchical acceptance, attempts to make amends for injuries both personal and historical.” Peter Hutchings, Discontinued Narratives: Elizabeth Day, edited by Nicholas Tsoutas, 2017.
