Elise Church

 68 Jay Street, Suite 604


Recovery and loss have been at the heart of Elise Church’s practice as an artist for over twenty years. Church’s work is based on found materials. She has used snapshots from the 1960’s as source material since 2013, excised or cropping their subjects to leave an abstracted pattern and shape with only a hint of the original picture.

On display will be a series of large scale paintings on paper whose inspiration is a 1-3 inch fragment of a photograph. Some small works of photo-collage and watercolor will also be shown.

Church graduated in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science in Fine Arts from Skidmore College. Church has exhibited in group shows in New York City, Bermuda, Saratoga Springs, and Venice over the years and in 2014 had her debut solo exhibition at Gallery Molly Krom, NY.
