WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - The Art Economist Co., publishers of The Art Economist, the 10-time per year publication that examines the contemporary art market, announces that its next issue cover will feature work created by artist, Liza Lou. 

Liza Lou
Born in New York City, Liza Lou was raised in Minnesota and currently lives and works in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and Los Angeles. She works in sculpture with glass beads on such social themes as labor, religion and confinement, creating beaded tableaux. Liza is best known for beading every inch of a to-scale, fully equipped kitchen (estimated to be 30 million beads) and a 525-square-foot backyard. In her South African studio, Liza maintains a staff of about 25 Zulu female assistants, who help in gluing thousands of upright cylindrical beads to her sculptural forms. The Dakis Joannou Collection, Cleveland Museum of Art, Whitney, Foundation Cartier, Pinault Foundation and Brant Foundation are but a few of the international collections that own her work.
