In the heart of our artist incubator, Portrait of an Artist in a Safe Space, we invite you to join us each week on an exploration like no other. Together, we will shine a spotlight on a single artist, offering you a glimpse into their inner world. Get ready to be inspired as we reveal a curated selection of images from their archives, along with a backstage peek at their current projects.🎭
To kick off the series, we thought it'd be super cool to get to know our amazing artists a little better. So, we asked them to peak into their archives and some of their favorite promo images from over the years. 🤩 But that's not all! We also dug into their personal treasure trove of memories and perspectives.
Image Details: First off, where and when did these images come to life, and who's the creative genius behind them? We're all ears!
Image Context: Why did these artists pick these particular images? What's the story behind these visuals? Tell us all about it!
Personal Touch: And finally, what kind of memories or emotions do these images evoke for our talented artists today? We're dying to know the backstory, the inspiration, the whole shebang.
Let's jump right in! 💫
Liz is an Actor, Composer/Sound Designer, and Creative Producer based in New York City.
This is one of my current headshots. The photo was taken in February 2022 by Shannon Rakow.
My headshots needed an update. I use this for audition submissions. It is a natural easy-going look. I think the image looks like me and shows a caring, joyful person. I bought the shirt I'm wearing in India - sometimes I have flashes of my India travels.
This flyer for The Woman Who Was Me was designed by my friend, Andrew Leman. He used publicity photos taken by Lloyd Mulvey. The text was written by Jeremy Williams and Liz Stanton. The font used for the title is an original design by Andrew Leman.
This compilation is a vibrant look into the play, The Woman Who Was Me. It is designed to entice the reader to want to book and/or see the performance.
As I look at this flyer, I have strong memories of living in the moments of the performance. Images of desire, yearning, and evolving.
This is a performance photo of Theatrical: A Tragedy performed in 2011.
I like the highly dramatic nature of this picture. It reflects the stylized work that I'm capable of. The creation of this piece was immersive and intense. I love the textures and colors! black feathers, hat, red lips and nails.
This is a more formal headshot. I feel it is more upscale. The photo was taken by Shannon Rakow in February of 2022
I imagine the roles I could be playing!
This is a screenshot of a recording session. I was capturing a video of me singing a new composition. The song is called Man of Mystery*.
*Listen to Liz's song Man of Mystery in our Contemporary Performance Gallery! Link below.
This image shows me working as a composer.
I hear the song in my head when I see this image.
