Elisa Berry Fonseca
My work is an investigation of my experience of the landscape. It often involves the repetition of an action or material to make installations that are explorations of color and line. The forms I make are drawings in space, hanging precariously and seemingly in flux. Stalagmites and stalactites hidden underground in caves, hoodoos, spires and canyons inspire me, as do winter branches and fall leaves. The energetic gestures I create are the result of my desire to see the landscape come alive, as if these forms were living beings transformed by their encounter with art.
