Emerging Indonesian-born artist Liza Markus graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts with a Diploma in Fine Arts (Sculpture) in 2017. Besides incorporating ceramic works in her installations, Markus explores and extensively integrates her artworks with various materials, such as found objects and used fabrics, to convey her concepts and personal narratives. Equipped with the skills of a sculptor, Markus is adept at assembling various materials. The selection of materials and ideas in her work exudes emotional dexterity and maturity seen in her sculpture, installation, writing and textile arts. Her artistic inspirations draw from themes of religion, history, identity and collective memories.

In Adam, Markus conceptualizes a comedic twist of the biblical Adam getting his heart broken by Eve. This work expresses Markus’ effort to reconcile with the experience of heartbreak. Consisting of a ceramic human figure (Adam), he is attached to a found mirror.
