About the Exhibit
I paint emotions, and I paint them in colors.
Joy, love, sorrow, frustration, excitement... a warm orange red cheers up a gloomy midnight blue... a big, bold jealous deep purple takes over... let's invite a bit of white to make peace.
And so these large fields of color start talking to and playing with each other, layer over layer, foundation colors under translucent colors under contrasting colors, it's all a moving target of shapes, lines, and textures. Rolling, brushing, dripping, spattering, slathering. They all add up to tell the story. My story, your story.

A Chat with the Artist:
In an informal and open setting, Ana Elisa will share what inspires her to paint and drives her to abstraction; how her current solo show “The Colors I’m Feeling” was conceived and developed; and how she achieves the depth, translucency and gloss that makes her work unique.
