Elise Geary Artist's Statement

Wordlessly, nature and elemental life speaks to us all.  

Connecting to memories and experiences resonate deeply with the innermost spaces of our beings.  My paintings evoke the multiple dimensions and essential elements found within ourselves and in natural phenomena, thus inviting others to share within the painting.

Combinations of mysterious luminous atmosphere with thicker textural areas and gestural marks portray the contrasting elements of strength, energy, and power with the opposing aspects of calmness, contemplation, and receptiveness.

A painting can trigger familiar yet undefined memories and feelings in our core thus offering a unique personal relationship to the art. Creating this responsive interaction is immensely satisfying to me as an artist and to you as a viewer.
