Description:

Color has always played a part in the depiction of the human spirit. It has been found to express spirituality and affect emotion. You can see the use of this in churches through the use of stained glass windows. Artist Elisa Boughner’s goal is to inspire those who view her work, to look more carefully at the world and to discover beauty in everyday objects around them. She creates objects within her paintings that are recognizable and imperfect.

Elisa uses color as a vocabulary of feelings and encourages the viewer to have a physical emotional reaction to the piece. Although she starts with some type of concept in mind the work builds into a character and a personality of its own. When it is finished it keeps on changing according to the state of mind of the viewer. Elisa believes that color reveals the soul of the artist and can affect the viewer in a similar way.
