American painter Elise Ansel (b. 1961, New York) is receiving a rise of international recognition following her recent sell-out show ‘Fusion of Horizons’ in London and her current critically acclaimed exhibition at the Bowdoin Museum, USA.
Interpreting classical paintings through a contemporary lense, familiar compositions are undermined narratively but accentuated sensually by her sweeping brushstrokes and provocative colours.
Ansel’s erudition is evident in her commitment to the canon of Western art and recognising her own place within contemporary painting.
