Eliza Gooden


Imaginative play with cotton reels and dressmaking pins under her grandmother’s sewing machine, informed Eliza’s storytelling from an early age. 

Eliza plays with narrative, storytelling within her practice, layering 3D sculptural forms with memories. Pieces embrace her lifelong love of foraging, birdlike for the found objects. Eliza has a deep-rooted fascination with the energy contained in previously handled/​worn materials. This is explored through an inner stillness, where she holds, feels and listens to the materials, creating new forms.

Eliza earned a first-class BA (HONS) degree in Fine Art at NTU, where she is currently studying for her MFA
