Elisa Gomez received her BFA with an emphasis in painting from the University of Utah in 2010 and currently lives in Denver. She has been involved in multiple shows since her graduation, most recently “Terrain” in San Francisco - a show based on pieces painted while traveling across the Western U.S. this summer. Publications include Luxe Interior+Design Magazine and Lonny Magazine.
Working primarily in mixed media on canvas, Elisa Gomez wields her materials with the skill of a practiced fine artist while nonetheless composing her canvases with the ease of a studied art historian. Evidenced by a few discernible, well-executed, and discrete operations, her working mode transposes the schema and aesthetic of both European and American Abstract Expressionism with a studied sensitivity particular to her training and practice. Gomez demonstrates a playful attention to color, texture, and surface. Palette and visual movement between, amongst, and across forms figure heavily into her pieces. In style as well as composition, Gomez’s work is replete with recurrent aesthetic maneuvers and peppered with extensive variation and experimentation. Her canvases continue to surprise and delight the viewer in their transposition of elements across genres and movements.
